BANDWIDTH featuring Beth Jeans Houghton plus local support
Friday 17 April 8:00 pm
Venue: Hall Two, The Sage Gateshead
Beth Jeans Houghton plus local support
Newcastle based singer-songwriter Beth Jeans Houghton has garnered a reputation as an antidote to the current crop of acoustic songstresses. With her alternative blend of experimental folk, Beth has been hailed by the NME as 'a Joni Mitchell for the anti-folk generation'. With influences ranging from Frank Zappa, Vashti Bunyan, Fourtet and Love, Beth has cultivated a sound that is truly her own. Since her first performance in August 2006, Beth has played alongside a diverse collection of artists such as Bon Iver, Adem, Imogen Heap, King Creosote, Jack Savoretti and Stephen Fretwell amongst others.
Support is from Balao and Pioneers of Mediocrity.
"Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, tonight's previously advertised artist, Danny and the Champions of the World, is unable to appear. Customers who purchased tickets before Friday 20th March will be contacted by our Ticket Office. We apologise for any inconvenience."
