Robert Lane is set to bring his delicate, folksy music to Newcastle Castle on Friday 6th April. Before that we caught up for a chat to get to know the talented musician a little better…

So, tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
I’m a singer songwriter from Birmingham.

What’s the first record you ever bought?
I played Sgt Pepper in a school play when I was very small and my mum bought the Sgt Pepper album on cassette so that I could learn the words to the song. Lifelong fascination with The Beatles started there.

What’s your guilty pleasure musically?
There was a band in the late ‘90s called Hepburn, and I maintain that their album has some really great little pop songs on it. No one has ever agreed with me about that though.

And finally, you get to play a board game with any three famous people from history, who do you choose and what’s the board game?
Gandhi, Dawrin and Julie Walters. We’d be playing Trivial Pursuit.
