This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Gateshead International Jazz Festival (4-6 April), and the celebrations include a performance from Joakim Milder and the Grammy-nominated Norrbotten Big Band.
Joakim has always been a great fan of Prefab Sprout, and since 1995 has been playing and remodeling the hits of Paddy McAloon, resulting in the 2012 album Quoted Out of Context. In this concert he will be performing some of the best-loved Prefab Sprout hits with a jazzy twist, on Prefab Sprout's home turf - a rare chance to hear the Sprouts' music performed live. The Sage are offering Sproutnet readers a 2-for-1 offer on tickets for this gig - to claim the offer you just need to quote ‘Joakim Milder 2 for 1’ at their Ticket Office (0191 443 4661). You can find out more about the concert, which also features Django Bates peforming the works of Charlie Parker, on the Sage's website.
