Annual micro festival Songs From Northern Britain returns to Stockton on Friday 25th November. Spread across The Georgian Theatre, the Georgian’s bar and neighbouring venue The Green Room, the event provides a roster of fresh talent from across the North East and Scotland.

With artists like The Howl & The Hum and The Snuts having played the event before, organisers The Kids Are Solid Gold and Tees Music Alliance are keen to provide a platform for the new names in the scene. 

Having played the festival several times already, Scottish alt. rock band Dancing On Tables are stepping up to headline position, straight off the release of their debut album Colour In The Grey, which has won praise for its fusion of anthemic indie pop. The band also venture back to the region for a show at Independent in Sunderland on Thursday 1st December.

Also on the bill are Newcastle’s thrillingly raw fuzz rockers Pave The Jungle; the melancholic and tear-stained pop of Jen Dixon; Sunderland’s phenomenally euphoric and funky dance music experience Vandebilt; the alt. folk sounds of Callum Pitt; cellist and vocalist Ceitidh Mac; Glaswegian indie popsters False Friends; Teesside garage rockers Onlooker and experimental riff rockers The Wife Guys of Reddit, with more to be confirmed.

Songs From Northern Britain takes place at The Georgian Theatre and The Green Room, Stockton on Friday 25th November.
