John Mayall In Concert: Sage Gateshead


For over 50 years, John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, rightly earning him the title, ‘The Godfather of British Blues’. This November, he's here on Tyneside to share his remarkable music with a North East audience.

Considered one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, John’s band The Bluesbreakers, launched the careers of many true legends including Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. 64 albums later and John’s captivating and authentic sound is still as vital today is it ever was.

Special guest and long term collaborator, Texan guitarist Buddy Whittington makes a welcome return to the UK with The Buddy Whittington Band. After joining The Bluesbreakers in 1993, he energised the band with his unique and fiery live style. Buddy made his recording debut on Spinning Coin and proved to be more than equal to following in the footsteps of his illustrious predecessors.
