Songs From Northern Britain returns for its third instalment on Saturday 17th November. The Teesside/Scotland next-generation showcase will be headlined by Scottish post-punks Rascalton and everyone’s favourite regular plural Mouses, and once again the day will be compered by BBC 6Music’s Vic Galloway.

Mouses will need little introduction to most, but with a new album on the way expect a few future lo-fi classics and old favourites, while Rascalton are promoting their latest EP CSC.

Set across three stages at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre and adjoining Green Room, the all-day all-ages micro-festival has lots more up its sleeve. Confirmed so far are Glasgow alt. rockers Nieves, the small town pop-rock of Dancing On Tables and Serinette’s “quite good pop”. The Scottish Highlands are represented by singer-songwriter Tamzene, while locals Salsola bring a groovy sound which should keep the party going. For those requiring something a bit more off the wall indie-boppers Fauves bring their bedroom pop to the stage and Teesside’s Heel Turn crank the riffs up to ten for the hardcore massive. Add to all that, sets from Ronald Raygun, epic songwriting from James & The Burn, indie electro pop from Swears and ‘orch-pop’ band Nel Unlit, and you’ve got the makings of a mighty fine day out.
