Reliably informed

Making a rare outing as a solo performer, at what promises to be an intimate Central Bar performance on Sunday 11th December, composer, songwriter, creative practitioner and proud Northerner Bridie Jackson will undoubtedly bring the extraordinary voice and highly evocative musicianship she’s acclaimed for those lucky enough to attend.

At turns her music and voice are described as beguiling, quirky, unique and baroque, and Jackson always brings her own special mix to the folk canon as she proceeds, even with spare accompaniment, to enchant and electrify in equal measure. No doubt she’ll also exhibit her easy, self-deprecating rapport as she spirits listeners away into her otherworldly aural creations.

Having long held a special place in the hearts of other musicians and audiences alike, both solo and as Bridie Jackson And The Arbour, the esteem with which she’s held speaks volumes to her song writing skills. Innumerable radio sessions, sold out live shows and national recognition continue to fill up her CV all while sharing her love of musical creativity far and wide. Due to the intimate setting tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so don’t miss this rare opportunity to see something magical up close.

The gig is also a collab with Sunderland-based We Make Culture’s Young Musician’s Project, and will see performances from up and coming artists Eve Cole and Jenali.

Bridie Jackson plays The Central Bar, Gateshead on Sunday 11th December.
