Episode #12 Gifts

Cattle & Cane, Jess Gillam and the Royal Northern Sinfonia are the artists appearing in this “Gift” themed episode. It’s the most wonderful time of the year… or so we’re told, and that’s partly because it’s a time for giving and receiving gifts.

So on this podcast episode, we’ll hear from Cattle and Cane siblings Helen and Joe Hammill about the very special gift they received from their father; saxophone sensation Jess Gillam will tell us whether she thinks being a skilled musician is a gift, or something you can learn; and we’ll follow the Royal Northern Sinfonia as they give up their time to share their talents with Older People’s Assembly in Gateshead.


Backstage is a regular podcast where we go behind the scenes for exclusive interviews and insights from leading and emerging artists who’ll be taking to the stage at Sage Gateshead, and discover some of the activities that take place, and the communities that meet there.
