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.

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.
