The Geordie Hour Concert

We’re raising funds for
Hospital Radio for
Newcastle & Gateshead

Radio Tyneside provides a variety of programmes to the hospital wards of Newcastle & Gateshead 24 hours a day - every day. And we’ve been at it over 62 years!

We rely on a great little team of volunteers and donations from the public to keep the service going.

Not just any old pies!
We’re delighted to say that New Zealand Gourmet Pies will be providing the pies for supper. Made in Kingston Park by Geordie Bakers. These are the best pies around. Check out their online pie shop here!

Keith Stephen’s
 Hot Club Trio
& Caroline Irwin

All the way from Newbiggin by the Sea! A real Geordie Hour favourite this band! They play a wide variety of music based initially on the style of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, but also encompassing a large repertoire of jazz standards, several gypsy waltzes and some more modern 1950s pop tunes.

Keith Stephen - Guitar & Banjo
Bob Surgeoner - Guitar
(Standing in for Roly Veitch)

Bruce Rollo - Double Bass

Caroline Irwin - Vocals


World famous group from Gateshead. Their legendary recording of ‘After The Goldrush’ was  issued as a single in November 1973. Following live Prelude performances on both Capital Radio and Radio One, it quickly became a worldwide success, reaching the top 20 in the UK, No 12 in the USA and No1 in both Canada and Australia.  The original trio Irene, Brian and Ian are with us tonight along with Paul Hooper (ex Fortunes) on drums and Keith Tulip on Bass.  Stand by for a roller-coaster of their own songs and some well-known covers; everything from Country, through to Rock and maybe a bit of Folky stuff chucked in.

Pete Scott

Originally from Walker, a fantastic singer songwriter and raconteur. Pete’s solo gigs are a mixture of poignant masterpieces and truly wacky comedy songs. In the 70s and 80s, Pete toured extensively, supporting major names like Lindisfarne, Janis Ian, Judy Tzuke, John Martyn and Richard Thompson.
