SummerTyne Americana Festival: Martha Wainwright + Honky Tonk Angels + Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys + Larkin Poe + My Darling Clementine + Sam Amidon
SummerTyne Americana Festival offers a sizzling gumbo of American roots music - from fiery tex-mex to classic country and blues, the newest southern soul and Americana, then some down-home cajun and bluegrass.
Taking place on the south side of the River Tyne, in and around the iconic music venue The Sage Gateshead, it promises a selection of the best Americana music in one of the most stunning city locations in the world!
Daughter of musical legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III, as well as the sister of Rufus Wainwright, Martha is now a highly regarded musician in her own right. This is due to the strength of her material, which is a fascinating mix of folk, rock, pop and more, all sung with her dramatic and extremely versatile voice.
Martha Wainwright tour dates
Named after the hit song by vintage country queen Kitty Wells, 'Honky Tonk Angels' is a special project created for SummerTyne. Fronted by Nashville country queen Elizabeth Cook, with Jan Howard as special guest - a long time member of the Grand Old Opry - and along with singers Brennen Leigh, Yolanda Quartey, Lou Dalgleish and Hannah Rickard; the group will celebrate the songs and lives of key country singers.
Honky Tonk Angels tour dates
Regarded by many as the best Cajun band in the world. They play sensational swamp-rock rhythms.
Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys tour dates
Rebecca & Megan Lovell's musical journey began playing classical violin and piano at the ages of just 5 and 6, and continued through their teenage years as they toured internationally from 2005 to 2010, with eldest sister Jessica, as The Lovell Sisters. During that time they played the stages of the Grand Ole Opry as well as several major US summer festivals including Bonnaroo and Telluride. Then in January 2010, following Jessica's departure for college, it was time to say 'farewell' to The Lovell Sisters and Larkin Poe was born, augmented by Knoxville-based musicians, Mike Seal (guitar, piano), Daniel Kimbro (bass, banjo) and Chad Melton (drums & percussion).
Larkin Poe tour dates
My Darling Clementine, Britain's most talked about country couple and the new darlings of Radio 2, with their country pop single '100,000 Words', is the combined talents of real life husband and wife team Michael Weston King and Lou Dalgleish.
