    From the heart of Northumberland, Alistair Anderson’s exciting new line-up conjures the spirit of the landscape with music that is rooted in both the hills and the tradition. Alistair’s own tunes rub shoulders with those of the Northumbrian shepherds who inspired him, alongside old tunes passed through many generations. Carefully chosen songs bring a different dimension and the whole is underpinned by arrangements that make the music soar and add a contemporary feel. Tickets £12 with concessions available
