One year on from the death of the legend that is Merle Haggard, Sage Two welcomes Merle Haggard’s Strangers featuring Ben and Noel Haggard, his sons, alongside their father’s band and supported by none other than Ashley Campbell, daughter of country superstar Glen Campbell.

On the back of her soon to be released album Wrangled, (21 April), Kentucky native and Pistol Annie’s Angaleena Presley takes to Sage Two and there’s also a double bill of two of the finest female blues voices from both sides of the Atlantic, Jo Harman and Lisa Mills.

Hotly tipped Manchester-based Californian Jesca Hoop will play with her full band supported by up and coming UK act Worry Dolls, and from Newcastle, via Massachusetts, Phil and Cath Tyler bring their brand of folk to SummerTyne in a concert featuring special guest and collaborator Tim Eriksen.
Back for 2017 will be the hugely popular Jumpin’ Hot Stage with MC, BBC Radio Newcastle’s Mr Drayton. The stunning riverside setting provides a perfect backdrop for audiences to kick back and enjoy a sizzling combo of country, blues, folk, rockabilly, bluegrass and soul.
