River Runs at Live Theatre

I'm super lucky to be performing with a fantastic group of singers and poets this Sunday evening. Not only that but we'll be performing on a gorgeous set designed by none other than Gary McCann (it's not ours, it was designed for Michael Chaplin's play Tyne - we're just borrowing it for the night).

So if you're free it'd be nice to see you down at Live Theatre.

To coincide with Michael Chaplin's Tyne this spectacular night of words and music celebrates the River Tyne in all its glory, following in the great traditions of local songsmiths and writers. RiverRuns features specially written words and music from Aiden Clarke, Alfie Crow, Kate Fox, Ben Holland, Degna Stone, Jeff Price and Simma, and Bridie Jackson. It will be in turn humorous, occasionally dark, sometimes irreverent and always entertaining.

“It’s hard not to be taken under the spell of the river Tyne. RiverRuns, a celebration of the ‘big river’ in song and spoken word, certainly makes you think so. Personal narratives overlap with common histories; tragedy overlays euphoria. How this translates into a stage show is masterful in its simplicity.”
