Stevie Williams is a talented UK bassist, singer and songwriter. As well as his solo work, he also fronts The Most Wanted Band, testament to his tireless work ethic and devotion to his craft. A life long devotee of the ageless blues, alt country and americana sounds, he has travelled the globe absorbing a plethora of diverse influences and honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.
Stevie Williams and his latest project ‘Pockets Full of Gold’ featuring the song ‘She Don’t Do’ was produced by Stevie, engineered and written entirely by Stevie with the exception of one track. The hands-on approach with this album pays off, as he seem's completely in tune with the sound he want's to project. ‘She Don’t Do’ is a moody, stripped back and somewhat dark track complete with soulful delivery from Stevie and touches of psychedelia that just add to his quirky appeal. It’s catchy without trying to be. http://forthecountryrecord.com
A first visit for this promising North-East based band, alumni of the excellent education programme at Sage Gateshead which has nurtured so many young players this past decade or so. With quartet members now students at prestigious conservatoires – including on the famed jazz programme at Berklee College in Boston, Massachusetts - at the moment they can only work together again when they’re not at college, hence this fortuitous summer visit.
Cuban Mashup Crisis have a distinct, Cuban-flavoured take on some of the great songwriting traditions of North and South America and Europe, as well as playing some powerful original material. All delivered with the unique energy that infuses their acclaimed live performances.
We welcome back a fine vocalist, accompanied by pianist Alan Law, with a programme featuring a selection from the timeless Beatles catalogue and a mix of Cuban & Brazilian-inspired tunes.

With her ebullient blend of vintage ukulele jazz, and blues-infused Retro-Pop Swing originals, Sara Spade’s music breaks boundaries, from youthful Camp Bestival to a WW2 reunion party at Birmingham City Hall. With Jonny Gee on double bass & Johnny Mattock on percussion, Sara’s music is widening the appeal of jazz, with the support of fans like Jools Holland, who says “She has a fantastic voice – her band makes me want to dance... they have that magical element which it’s almost impossible to put your finger on!”.
Sara sets her own songs next to Charlestons like Five Foot Two, eyes of blue, jazz versions of It must be love and heart-melting ballads like Secret love. Her originals like Beautiful and Long long time with you will leave you whistling, smiling and laughing.
