Vin Garbutt

Posted on 7 June 2017

We were very saddened to hear of the passing of the ‘Teeside Troubadour’ Vin Garbutt yesterday. Vin performed regularly as part of our Folkworks programme from 1988 (pre-Sage) onwards and made many appearances at Sage Gateshead to loyal, sell out audiences.

A modest and unassuming man who thoroughly deserved the joy and respect people showed for his music and song-writing.

His personality and warm humour will be missed enormously though he leaves a legacy of wonderful music and song about his beloved region and its people.
