It’s great that we have been asked to perform as part of the Folkworks: Pass It On Festival. This is being held on the 3rd and 4th March at Sage Gateshead and contains an exciting mix of free events and wonderful concerts celebrating the shared heritage of the north east.
“Folkworks: Pass it On Festival is a celebration of local heritage through singing, music, dance and storytelling passed down from one generation to the next. Alongside performances in Sage One and Sage Two, expect a range of free activities to accompany the event, from heritage walks and a story telling lounge to rapper dance and vocal workshops.
Friday and Saturday will see a collection of the region and country’s top folk performers, with the likes of folk legend Shirley Collins, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Emily Portman, the incredible vocals of The Wilson Family, Instrumentalist of the Year Rachel Newton, Alasdair Roberts, Anglo-American folk duo Cath and Phil Tyler and Bottle Bank Band all performing throughout the weekend.”
