Newcastle-based accordion and percussion duo, Amy Thatcher & Francesca Knowles bring their playfully energetic, free flowing live show to The Old Coal Yard on Thursday 15th December. 

Their sound incorporates drums, synths, keys and vocals into vivid and dynamic soundscapes, and this gig will be an opportunity to hear their debut album, Emergency of the Female Kind (set to be released in 2023), played in full.

Support comes from composer-songwriter and multi-instrumental improviser Faye MacCalman, whose experimental songwriting draws on jazz, folk, and rock with off kilter patterns and heartfelt melodies inspired by under the surface emotional worlds.

Both acts will blow your expectations of genre out of the water. Entry is free. Book your place here.
