Preview: Davina & the Vagabonds return to Sage Gateshead!

Quick! Tickets are flying out the door for Davina and the Vagabonds' late night SummerTyne Americana show. It's exactly four years to the day (July 20, 2014) that Davina Sowers (now Davina Lozier) played a killer set on the Jumpin' Hot Club outdoor stage. On that occasion Davina made a huge impression, a lasting memory is of the Twin Cities' musician belting out I'd Rather Go Blind

The following year Davina returned to Sage Gateshead to play Gateshead International Jazz Festival. Bebop Spoken Here's Editor in Chief was there and was suitably impressed! Now, three albums later - 2011's Black Cloud, 2014's Sunshine and the 2016 live album Nicolette and Tenth (I'd Rather Go Blind is on it!) - Davina is to play a late night show (10:30) tomorrow evening (Saturday) in Sage Two. 

A red hot band, N'Awlins' street savvie, a Memphis dirty blues feel, first rate musicianship and...Davina. Presence, star quality, great voice, this is one gig that you simply must not miss! To bag one of the last few tickets call Sage Gateshead's ticket office on 0191 443 4666.

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.
