Festival Crowd Header

Legendary Scottish duo The Proclaimers will headline Sunday’s family day at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival.

Charlie and Craig Reid boast worldwide hits spanning three decades and are best known for their huge singles ‘Letter from America’, and ‘I’m Gonna Be’ (500 miles).

‘I’m Gonna Be’ spent six weeks at number one in Australia, six months on the US Billboard Singles Chart and is fondly remembered from one of the pivotal scenes in the movie Shrek.

They will perform at the spectacular Tynemouth Priory and Castle on Sunday 14 July and will be joined by multi-platinum selling, Irish singer songwriter Jack Lukeman and many more.

Elsewhere at the festival, Monday 8 July sees the return of north east singer songwriter Nadine Shah. The Mercury Prize nominee will perform a special show at Playhouse Whitley Bay.

The Wandering Hearts have been confirmed as special guests for Jack Savoretti’s show on Friday 12 July. The folk-Americana four-piece are part of the new wave of country bands making waves in the UK and US and have a huge following already, with their debut album Wild Silence a seemingly permanent fixture in the country album charts.
