Starting off the night was singer songwriter Callum Pitt who recently released his new single ‘Forgotten Kids’. The young lad from Newcastle writes about the issues of modern society. ‘Forgotten Kids’ is about the rising poverty levels in the UK. It refers to the rough sleepers and families having to use food banks, people who have been let down badly by our system. His positively chilling voice and humble performance style won over the crowd and got them listening speechlessly.
Second act of the night was alternative folk duo Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester, also known as Ferris & Sylvester. The musical couple was as mesmerising as they were energetic and they gave all they had to the audience. They were completely loving the Geordie spirit of clapping, singing and dancing along.
Not just being incredibly strong musically, but also lyrically, the duo knew exactly how to make their future fans listen and sometimes with tears in their eyes. Their latest release ‘Flying Visit’ is one of those songs that speaks directly to the public and makes us all relate in our own way to our own stories and memories.
Even though these two acts were great on their own, we still had the amazing and stunning Wildwood Kin coming up. The beautiful band, inside and out, consisting of Emillie, Beth and Meghan made the audience go ecstatic but completely silent at the same time.
