Support acts announced for Futureheads' Durham Cathedral gig
THE support acts for a one-off Durham Cathedral gig by indie stars The Futureheads have been announced.
The Sunderland-based post-punk four-piece will be joined for the ‘a capella’, or voices only, concert by The Lake Poets and Natasha Haws.
South Shields-based Haws, 18, has only been writing and performing her own music for just over a year.
However, after being discovered playing a busker’s night in a pub, she has enjoyed a stunning rise, playing packed-out gigs across the country.
The Lake Poets is the music of Sunderland-based Martin Longstaff, said to be an honest and hauntingly emotive blend of acoustic indie and folk.
Kate James, from Visit County Durham, said: “I think Natasha and Martin have the voices, style and emotive impact that will ‘wow’ the audience in Durham Cathedral.
“We’re thrilled that they’ll be joining us for what’s sure to be a very special evening.”
The gig will be at Durham Cathedral on Saturday, August 25, at 8pm. Tickets are priced £17.50. To book, call 03000-262626 or visit seetickets.com or ticketweb.co.uk
The concert is the centrepiece of the four-day Durham Streets Summer Festival.
