Sunderland’s ‘Culture Quarter’ (loving the ‘brand it and they will come’ approach, BTW) will be overflowing with Christmas cheer and live music on Saturday 22nd December, as the area around the Fire Station complex will host a ‘music crawl’ taking place in three venues – the Dun Cow, The Engine Room at the Fire Station and The Peacock.

At the Dun Cow, a trio of superb singer-songwriters will provide the tunes. Seaham’s This Little Bird headlines, bringing her emotive sounds and gorgeous lyrics to proceedings; she’ll be joined by pop and soul singer Josh Hodgson and emerging acoustic songwriter Aimee Lambert. Over at The Engine Room, expect sounds from ace indie folk popsters Tall Shaves, aka Kieran Taylor and Paige Temperley, plus there’s a set from Newcastle-based singer-songwriter Sarah Connolly. The Peacock welcomes an altogether rowdier line-up, featuring indie rockers Great Waves, who have been rightly lauded for their energetic, upbeat style; dancefloor thrills come from Club Paradise; and Sunderland favourites Cohesion make a welcome return, with their melodic rock ‘n’ roll.

Two venues (Dun Cow and Engine Room) will be free entry, with The Peacock ticketed at a mere £5, with a portion of sales and your kind donations given to Sunderland Mind.
