STATEMENT FROM MOUTH OF THE TYNE FESTIVAL
‘With a heavy heart, we announce that we have decided to reschedule this summer’s Mouth of the Tyne Festival. We will return between 8-11 July 2021. Newton Faulkner rescheduled for Monday 16 November this year. We'll provide an update on festival performances from Saving Grace and John Cooper Clarke soon.'
Saving Grace……a co-operative including former Led Zepplin frontman Robert Plant – vocals, Suzi Dian - vocals, Oli Jefferson - percussion, Tony Kelsey – mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars, and Matt Worley – banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, and cuatro.
“…from a whisper to a scream”.
“The opening track of Saving Grace’s set, ‘Undone In Sorrow’, illustrates perfectly the nature of the evening’s performance; the impact of sensitive arrangements and dynamics that can be produced when a talented cooperative congregate. Suzi Dian takes the lead vocal line with its euphonic quality resonating round this legendary venue, executing a steady yet emotive crescendo and diminuendo in unity with the rest of the band. The five musicians work in glorious harmony from start to finish reworking a selection of diverse cover versions that have been collected from various places creating a musical journey in its truest form.
…These five musicians have produced a supreme ninety minutes of music with considered interpretations of others compositions, ensuring they present an innovative exploration of the songs whilst maintaining their true essence. Furthermore, this odyssey has been undertaken in the spirit of appreciation, musicianship, and exultation: they truly are a band of joy!”.
