Mr Corvan’s Shadow Troupe perform for free on the Sage Gateshead concourse, ahead of the Mr Corvan’s Music Hall, in Sage Two on the 9th and 10th of June.
This troupe were brought together, with amazing support from Sunday for Sammy, to produce their own small show about the life and songs of Ned Corvan, the North East’s first Superstar singer / songwriter. This free performance coincides with the regional tour of a major new musical Mr Corvan’s Music Hall which comes to Sage Gateshead on 9th & 10th June.
The four young troupe-members bring their own modern twist Corvan’s story, using acoustic guitar and violin, the latter played by Charlotte Kennedy who has performed many times at Sage Gateshead. This 35 minute show tells the story of the tragically short life of Ned Corvan with songs, poetry and humour.
