Sage Gateshead Special Guest Revealed

Music Beyond Mainstream presents
Symphonic Grace
Paloma Faith
with the Guy Barker Orchestra

Paloma Faith and the Guy Barker Orchestra will present full-blown orchestral arrangements of Paloma’s Brit-nominated 'Fall to Grace' album, including the hits 'Picking Up The Pieces' and '30 Minute Love Affair', intermingled with classic jazz ballads.
With a 42-piece orchestra, backing singers and fabulous costumes, the concert promises to show Paloma Faith at her most epic.
In 2010 and 2012, to critical acclaim, she wowed the Cheltenham Festival and London Barbican by teaming up with the Guy Barker Orchestra and she now takes that to a new level with the 'Symphonic Grace' tour.
