Gosforth Civic Theatre have provided music-hungry audiences with some tasty livestreamed sets over the past few months, and April sees a pair of shows which will have diverse appeal.

The charity-run theatre and music venue welcomes multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Fitzgerald on Friday 9th April, for a free-to-view solo set which will see the neo-classical composer perform a selection of his own songs and some which have inspired his work. Fitzgerald’s music spans a variety of genres, and his unique contemporary sound explores varied themes from mental health issues to grief and loss. A mesmerising performer, his set is sure to be a memorable one.

Also performing from the venue will be vocalist and songwriter Zoe Gilby, who is joined by jazz trumpet player Noel Dennis on Friday 16th April as part of the launch of their new project Aurora (which also features bassist Andy Champion, guitarist Mark Williams and drummer Russ Morgan). Aurora has been inspired by the compositions of trumpet and flugelhorn hero Tom Harrell, which Gilby has written her own lyrics to, serving to demonstrate both musicians’ dynamic style. Tickets cost £7.50, with only one needed per household.
