Willy Mason and The Charlatans give praise to Newcastle's Communion Unplugged 2012
Posted: 3rd April 2012
Who's up for a spot of 'folk on the Tyne', then? We thought you might be and this year the North east has a real treat in store. On 11th and 12th May, two leading acoustic acts will be filling a disused warehouse at Newcastle's Hoult's Yard as part of a thrilling weekend of like-minded entertainment. Formerly known as Ouseburn Unplugged, the brand new refurbished event is now known as Communion Unplugged and features a dozen or so performers across the two days.
On Friday, American songwriter and musician Willy Mason will spearhead the first day's entertainment with his understated yet infectious blend of music, supported by singer Lucy Rose, one-man Wearsider Martin Longstaff, aka The Lake Poets, another songwriter with a pseudonym, Fran O'Hanlon aka Ajimal and teenage starlet Natasha Haws. The day costs just £15.
And £15 is the same price to see Saturday's stunning line-up which is headlined by The Charlatan's Tim Burgess and Mark Collins. The pair will rip through their beloved back-catalogue, while the supporting cast of BBC Sound of 2012 nominee Ren Harvieu, Swindon's latest talented export Josh Kumra, The Jar Family, Motion Tourist and Amy Holford will ably provide a big build-up.
We also have weekend tickets available, priced at £25. Whilst we recognize that the shows take place in a warehouse, tickets will sell quickly enough to fill both days.
