Backstage: Episode #21 SummerTyne Saturday

In this second SummerTyne Americana festival episode, we speak with photographer Mark Savage who has captured many of Americana’s biggest stars; the BBC’s Bronnie McCarthy’s tell us about the broadcast wifi technology being trialed at the festival this weekend; and we talk to some diehard SummerTyne fans who have been to the festival every… single….year.

There’s a chance too to hear again our interviews with singer-songwriter Eve Selis; one of country music’s newest stars, Catherine McGrath; and Stevie Freeman, head of the Americana Music Association in the UK.

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.
