Her performance in 2008 was one of the absolute artistic highlights of the festival's history and we couldn’t be happier that she is coming back to join us as part of the Ingenue Redux tour marking the 25th anniversary of her seminal album, to perform it in its entirety at SummerTyne along with a range of other material from her long and celebrated career.  It promises to be a very special evening.”
