Whilst we eagerly await the apparent ‘return to normality’ to bring full-blown festivals along with it, Middlesbrough Town Hall have worked up a tantalising stopgap in the form of their Summer Sessions. A series of gigs that boast a refreshingly broad and diverse selection of local artists, the Summer Sessions promise mini-festival vibes, replete with beer garden and an unprecedented opportunity to relive the glorious euphoria of discovering emerging talent.

Beginning with a double-bill of indie-folk-pop stalwarts Finn Forster and Alistair James (1st July), the Summer Sessions are taking place every Thursday evening through July and August and feature Jake Radio (Be Quiet. Shout Loud!) and Jen Dixon (8th July) Marketplace and Luke Royalty (15th July), Moon Wax and Charlotte Grayson (22nd July) Jodie Nicholson and Amelia Coburn (29th July), Joe Ramsey and Eve Conway (5th August), The Lulas and Leddie MC (12th August) concluding with Michael Gallagher and Shakk (26th August). As we start to slowly head towards the return of good old proper gigs and festivals, and the diverse talent on offer within the Summer Sessions is a sobering reminder of all the phenomenal talent that will continue to thrive as live music, as we know it, begins to find its feet again.
