Location: Merlin Theatre
Price: £15.00
Description: Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne but with members hailing from Orkney to Warwickshire, the Tea Pad sound draws on myriad influences – from Hank Williams to Django Reinhardt, Tom Waits to The Beatles – yet ultimately sounds like nobody else, that North Eastern Swing style that’s utterly their own. Performances include festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, Wilderness and Cambridge Folk Festival. They’ve appeared three times on Radio 4’s Loose Ends, and had their music played by everyone from Marc Riley to Huey Morgan. Joining Rob Heron (vocals/guitar) is Tom Cronin (mandolin/harmonica/guitar), Colin Nicholson (accordion/organ/piano) and Ted Harbot (double bass/electric bass) and Paul Archibald (drums). This concert will take place outdoors on the Ecos Amphitheatre- come prepared! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCl8uE39tN8
