EVERYONE DESERVES MUSIC AT SAGE GATESHEAD

Sage Gateshead is hosting its second annual festival - ‘Everyone Deserves Music’- aimed at everyone interested in the value of music in our lives.
Teachers, musicians, music practitioners and music organisations will descend on the international music centre from April to hear from inspirational cultural leaders as well as performances from music degree students studying at the venue. The festival is being run in partnership with Sound Sense – the UK professional association promoting community music and supporting community musicians.
 Keynote speakers at a Symposium on April 29 include François Matarasso (writer and researcher and author of Use or Ornament) and Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett. They will be addressing the following subjects: ‘Music: What is it Good for?’ (Francois Matarasso) and ‘How Can Music Save the Planet?’ (Natalie Bennett)
Throughout April and early May students from the BA (Hons) Community Music degree (delivered by Sage Gateshead in partnership with University of Sunderland) have created an exciting programme of performances from Alnwick to Northallerton, including a number of events at Sage Gateshead showcasing the up-and-coming talents of musicians studying music there.
Katherine Zeserson, Director of Learning and Participation, at Sage Gateshead, said: “Everyone Deserves Music is a region-wide celebration of why music is so important for all of us and highlights the importance and benefits of being involved in music, whether that’s as a performer, a participant or audience member. The Symposium is also a great opportunity for people to meet like-minded peers and explore new ways of involving more people in music-making.”

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.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
