Record breakers, chart toppers and country crossover stars Ward Thomas are returning to Gateshead!
22 year old twins Catherine and Lizzy made history with their stunning major label debut when it reached the top spot in the U.K. Album charts, by becoming the first ever UK country act to achieve the feat. On top of that extraordinary achievement, the album stayed in the top five for three weeks: a rare accomplishment.
Written in Nashville in 2014, Cartwheels, “the devastating title track” (Sunday Times , Culture), was the song that kick started the entire writing process for the album. Reflecting on experiences of young women (and men!) everywhere, it tells the sad tale of someone who refuses to accept that a relationship is over. The heartbreaking story is brought to life by the sister’s stripped back vocals and beguiling harmonies.
Some of the biggest names in music visit the banks of the Tyne this May and June while we also have innovative talks and performances as part of Thinking Digital Arts 2017 & Hexham Gathering returns.
Sage Gateshead showcases a strong line-up of folk, roots and blues artists from both sides of the Atlantic.
