Bebop Spoken There

Howard Riley: “When I started out playing jazz back in the late 50s, early 60s, if you wanted a gig you had to learn some standards.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Eric Harland: “I love swing and I’m always going to swing but I also know that you can take a hip-hop groove and improvise with that just like you would with a swing pattern.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Taking place in and around Sage Gateshead from 22nd to 24th July, SummerTyne Americana Festival is a feel-good celebration of American roots music and brings together some of the finest and most exciting performers from both sides of the Atlantic. The weekend long party is jam packed full of the best country, folk, bluegrass, rockabilly, blues, soul and roots music.
The line-up also includes highly influential singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter, country duos Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison plus Brennen Leigh & Noel Mckay, new folk pioneers The Mike & Ruthy Band plus Gill Landry, bluegrass from Ron Block and a simmering blues stew from Lucky Peterson. There’s even a not to be missed bluegrass reworking of rock opera Tommy from The HillBenders.
The SummerTyne River Cruises return for 2016, with live music from Gill Landry and Miss Mary & The Mr Rights on Saturday 23rd July and Dean Owens and Chester And The Fog on Sunday 24th July. 
Of course the incredibly popular Jumpin’ Hot Outdoor Stage will be back too with 3 days of free music to enjoy on the banks of the Tyne.  Entertaining the crowds outside will be Eve Selis & Band, Mary Jean Lewis & Her Lowmen, Urban Pioneers, Amanda Rheaume Trio, Little Victor, Hymn for Her, 10 String Symphony, Danielle Howle, Peter Bruntnell Band, Yola Carter & Band, Luke & Mel, Shipcote & Friends, Tony Bengtsson, Chloe Chadwick, Hokum Hotshots, Sons of Bido Lito, Kari MacLeod & The Fugitives and Teresa Watson’s Blues Band.
With street food, a film programme, exhibitions, merchandise from our SummerTyne traders, a chance to join our SummerTyne Soul Choir and many more acts still to be announced, we defy you not to find something to blow you away, get your feet tapping and put a huge smile on your face.  It’s SummerTyne time!

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
