Tamsin Austin, Director of Performance Programme at Sage Gateshead said: 
Tamsin Austin
Performance Programme Manager
at The Sage Gateshead

“This year, we have a remarkable line up of legends; everyone should see artists like Graham Nash, Steve Earle and Iris Dement at least once in their lifetime and we know that these artists will appeal to the Americana aficionado. 
However, we also have some incredible young artists that really represent the popular appeal and future of the genre. Sam Palladio, Striking Matches and Sarah Darling are firmly within this stable, and we also have some incredible British cross-over artists, including Yola Carter, Robert Vincent and Jade Bird who demonstrate the strength and quality of our UK Americana artists.
These artists not only appeal to the next generation of fans, but are a bellwether of the increasing popularity of the genre amongst a younger audience. At SummerTyne we try to do justice to this amazingly diverse and booming genre of music, and this year’s line-up certainly achieves this.”
