Archipelago + Very Special Guests  -  Sun Dec 09, 2018  |  08:00 pm
Admission £ 8.00 ( £ 6.00 concessions)
North East trio Archipelago have spent the last few years working hard on developing their music and growing their audience, winning over fans around the country with their adventurous performances and honest, anything-goes compositions. So, when their leader Faye MacCalman was awarded a prestigious Peter Whittingham development award at the beginning of the year, they set about finding something a little different to do with that funding.

The resulting project, ‘Between Waves', explores and celebrates the diverse voices of modern female artists and the powers of collaboration and communication. Taking applications from women all around the UK, Archipelago have invited four selected artists to travel to Newcastle, collaborating with each visitor on new music over an intensive two-day residency throughout September and October.

The resulting work will be premiered and recorded live during a specially organised series of concerts in their home city, to be presented as a document of everything learned and shared during this ambitious project. Their concert with Jazz North East celebrates the grand finale for both this years 'Women Make Music' series and Archipelagos 'Between Waves'.
