If we still had a proper Miners Picnic (in Bedlington), then you might want to invite the Reverend Payton and his Big Damn Band, check this video out.....

Been listening to the new Mark Knopfler album - Tracker, and it's very good, but the stand-out track (for me) is the duet with Ruth Moody (of the Wailin' Jennies, a Canadian based trio of ladies).

Malcolm,

  Mr. Hiatt is one of my old time favourites, I have most of what he has recorded and seen him live a couple of time too.

I just thought the girls did justice to a very good song and I'm glad that you liked it. Lincoln Town is another very good Hiatt song.

My favourite album of John Hiatts is "Little Head" with the fabulous line in the song "Pirate Radio" that goes something like "One star in the sky, so I named it Otis Redding, just like Marvin Gaye searching for his Tammi Terrell". Magic.

Sting , Jimmy Nail, The Unthanks, The Wilsons, Katherine Tickell and more were at the Sage Friday and Saturday.

We needed to take out a mortgage to get a ticket or two but the concert was one of the very very best.

People from all around the World were at the venue.

The car park was not full and after there were so many people outside taking pictures

You just had to be there.

Maggs,

 

I'm very jealous, as we tried to get tickets, in vain for Sting's "The Last Ship", but went along on Friday to see the girls in Hall 2. Have you seen the Sting review by Alan Harrison on ND, put this link into your search engine and check it out :

Malcolm,

  I can see where you're coming from. I saw the Notting Hillbillys when they toured (I think it was at Aylesbury Town Hall !!). Jason Isbell was in The Drive by Truckers, who are worth catching up with, but I love his 2013 album solo "Southeastern", which is more singer/songwriter/americana type of stuff. So I was pleasantly surprised to see this video with the latest incarnation of Lynard Skynard.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
