Free Concerts!

Yes, that’s the good news, the bad  news is that you've missed them as they took place last week and I should have mentioned them before the event(s) sorry!
I’m referring to The Newcastle University Folk Degree assessed performances that took place at the Sage in Hall 2 last Tuesday to Thursday.  Anyone who didn't enjoy these concerts, could try asking for their money back!
I mention all of this because jazz elements invariably crop up in these concerts.  This year there was a 4 piece band doing Django material.  A young lady, Kari Macleod, sung a stunning version of I am a Weary and a Lonesome Traveller, accompanying herself on a mournful, weary sounding, fiddle, just right for a song sung with great feeling. Chloe Merriott did a step dance, (Appalachian I think), and Seth Tinsley performed a moving Randy Newman song Louisiana 1927, about a flood which was similar to Hurricane Katrina.  Dogan Mehmet, the partner of Eliza Carthy, kicked off the concerts with a themed set of music about a journey on the Orient Express, with lots of danceable eastern rhythms.  Something for everyone.  Next year I'll preview before and review after!
