One NIght in Gateshead: The Songs of Ed Pickford

Thursday 21 October, Sage, Gateshead, Hall 2 at 8 pm

Great songs of Ed Pickford sung by great Northeasterners, including
MC Dave Normanton, Jim Sharp , Lucy Falkenau, The Keelers, Jim Bainbridge, Benny Graham, Johnny Handle (The High Level Ranters), Andy Seagroatt and Barrie & Ingrid Temple.

Ed cites Woody Buthrie and the Music Hall as some of his first influences and his songs (including Farewell Johnny Miner, Workers' Song and Pound a Week Rise) are sung across the world, including by Dick Gaughan, John Doyle, The Dropkick Murphies, Whiskey Priests, Tom McConville, the Demon Barber Roadshow and many others.
The themes range from mining and political songs animated by a sharp concern for justice and workers' rights to Northeastern dialect reminiscences, to sharp and humorous glances at recent events (credit crunch) to whimsy (Hamster Sid, 'I became a juke box when I crossed the Irish Sea')...
Ed's songbook is
here
and youtube channel, here, mainly songs that postdate the songbook.

The concert is the first in a series at the Sage organized by Kathryn Tickell; next up will be Bob Davenport.

I have covered a number of Ed's songs since the late 1960's and would come north for the concert but I will be over the pond. I am sure the event will be a great tribute, all the best to those involved. Brian (born in Chester le Street).

Just bumping this back... it should be a great evening.

I forgot to mention Ed's classic humorous monologues, which have been recited by Alistair Anderson, Louis Killen, Johnny Handle and others at Whitby Folk Week...Death at the Leek Show, Uncle Albert and others.

looks like just about a dozen tickets left on level one and more on level two.
