Boiler Shop Presents: 100 Years - A Weekend of music and performance to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Armistice
To mark the centenary of Armistice Day, Boiler Shop presents ‘100 Years’, a weekend of unique events curated by the venue’s Richard Clouston and Daveid Phillips with author and editor of The Quietus, Luke Turner.
Much loved UK institution British Sea Power will play on Saturday 10th November with support from London based experimental post punk trio Bas Jan, who are built around the remarkable and distinctive voice and songs of multi-instrumentalist Serafina Steer.
In the very early hours of Sunday 11th November, world-renowned sound recordist Chris Watson will present 'A Nightingale on The Western Front', a multichannel sound composition recorded in the battle sites of Flanders. This event will run from 5:00am to 7:30am on the Mezzanine for a limited audience of 80 people, followed by breakfast and a Q and A session with Chris and Luke Turner. Then a very special live show from Newcastle’s own Richard Dawson.
The weekend will conclude with a live show from the legendary English folk singer Shirley Collins, who released her first album in 30 years, 2016’s brilliant Lodestar. We hope 100 Years will be a poignant reflection on sacrifice and a dignified celebration of peace.
