Howay The Lasses : Autumn Tour

The Sage, Hall 2, St Mary's Square, Gateshead, NE8 2JR

‘Howay The Lasses’ are a vibrant new collaborative that celebrate the lives of notable women heroes of the North East of England through original songs and arrangements. Singer and accordionist Annie Ball, father and daughter singer-songwriter combination Gareth and Bronwen Davies-Jones, and cellist Katie Tertell began working together during the lockdown of 2021. The result is an engaging and original canon of material in tribute to the lives of historical characters such as engineer Rachel Parsons and mathematician Janet Taylor as well as contemporary figures like artist Sheila Graber and even the Newcastle United Women’s Football team.

“…a moving paean to the lives of women from the North-East of England, from the fêted to the altogether more obscure.. ear-catching three-part vocal harmonies.. an uplifting foot-tapping delight.” – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Songlines Magazine
