Magnetic North East 2017 Annual Concert Announced!

We are excited to announce our second major concert in Sage One which will take place on 10th November 2017!  Join us for a diverse evening of music, dance and poetry!

Featuring the stunning songs of Sunderland troubadour Martin Longstaff (The Lake Poets) and the superbly energetic North East/Scandi fusion of Baltic Crossing, who unite fiery Scandinavian fiddles with the irresistible energy of the Northumbrian pipes, this is an unmissable event!  FURTHER ACTS ANNOUNCED include Magnetic North East's highly sought after youth band Superfolkus, and dynamic rapper sword team Star & Shadow!

We are also proud to be launching a new anthology from Britain’s leading poetry publisher, Bloodaxe Books!

 ‘Land of Three Rivers’ is a celebration of North-East England in poetry, featuring its places and people, culture, history, language and stories in poems and songs with both rural and urban settings.

The Lake Poets - “Beautiful and quietly devastating – Stunningly heart-breaking music”.
