My Life Story begin our list of gigs including romantic Valentine's evenings and un-romantic un-Valentine bills as well. In the week that saw Reading/Leeds ridiculously snub female acts Teesside celebrates great women writers and performers with SHE at the Georgian. And why should young people, as in very young school children be left off our list of gig goers? Well, the kids are doing it for themselves this week.

We are starting the year with a storming BIG Little Gigs at The Forum Music Centre, Darlington on Saturday 15th Feb 2pm-3pm. The event will be part workshop, part gig and we will be welcoming rising female hip-hop star Kay Greyson

Kay Greyson is a twenty one year old Hip Hop artist from the North East of England. Since releasing her debut mixtape 'Morning After Music' in 2016, she has performed all across the UK including opening for Akala, KRS One, Pharoahe Monch, Lil Eazy E and DJ Yella. She takes strong inspiration from her influences Chance the rapper and Childish Gambino and she incorporates their fun and interactive performance style into her own. She has been described as having a 'witty and energetic set that gets the room on board from the off.' Kay Greyson leads with her personality, telling personal and sometimes dark stories in her lyrics but delivering them with youthful joy and enthusiasm. Kay also featured on the Noisy Daughters compilation, the first vinyl compilation featuring exclusively female artists from the North.

Kay will be starting off the event with a short, fun interactive workshop teaching everyone BIG and little some hip-hop vocal skills! We are so excited for this!

MEGSON

ARC

8pm

£14 / £12 concession + £0.10 booking fee per ticket

The husband-and-wife team of Stu and Debbie Hanna, known as Megson, are one of the successful curiosities of the British folk scene.

She is a classically trained singer who plays piano, accordion and whistle, while he is a former prog-rocker who sings and plays guitar, mandolin and banjo. The duo hail from Teesside but are now ex-pats in Cambridgeshire. They have been nominated in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards three times and are double winners of the Spiral Earth Awards.

Megson draw heavily on their Teesside heritage to create their truly unique brand of folk music, bringing an infectious mix of heavenly vocals, lush harmonies and driving rhythmic guitars. They have gained fame on the British folk scene, not only for their arresting and intelligent songwriting, but for their exquisite musicianship; their harmonisation and the purity of Debbie's voice make compelling listening. They have a melodic roots consciousness and a huge sense of individuality coupled with a good dollop of Northern humour. As fRoots magazine puts it 'if you don't like the music here then you have a problem'.
