Backstage: Episode #22 SummerTyne Sunday

In this final SummerTyne Americana festival episode, we go backstage to hear exclusive performances from Rachel Harington and Izzie Walsh; we drop in on a blues masterclass by Alvin Youngblood Hart; we speak to Scott Wall who plays blues on guitars he’s made from cigar boxes; and find out from Sage Gateshead’s director of programming, Tamsin Austin, how she brings all these amazing artists to the SummerTyne Americana festival.

There’s a chance too to hear again our interviews with Texas guitar-slinger Jesse Dayton; and local funk and soul artist Smoove.

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.
