Simon Todd and Phil Caffrey

Friday 14 August, 8pm
Live music from The Globe! … But you can only watch it on a screen, for now.

On Friday 14 August two of the North East’s finest singer songwriters, Simon Todd and Phil Caffrey, will be performing at The Globe. The gig will be streamed live and you can watch it again at any time. The Globe will remain closed to the public so please do not try to attend the gig in person. We are planning to allow audiences in The Globe as soon as we can accommodate them safely and within government guidelines.

Simon Todd is a founder member of Northumberland favourites, Morgan le Fay, Todd is an accomplished singer-songwriter, having rubbed shoulders with the likes of Chris Difford and Karine Polwart. His latest album, ‘Half Empty / Half Full’ was produced by Boo Hewerdine. Strong melodies, a big voice and quite possibly some dodgy banter

Phil Caffrey has been writing and singing songs for almost all of his life, but surprisingly, when he agreed to be the special guest on the opening leg of Dave Fenley & Simon Todd’s 2012 UK tour “Beer, Blokes & Ballads”, it was to be the first time he had performed as a solo acoustic singer-songwriter. Revered in the North East for live performances with “The Caffreys”, who reached the final of BBC TV’s ‘UK’s Best Part-Time band’, Phil now dedicates much of his time to teaching and coaching aspiring young musicians; passing on his skills to the next generation, and giving them a platform on which to develop and perform.

So that the musicians can get paid, we ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5 per person. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has almost completely stopped.

1. Make a donation via the following link.
Donate what you can afford, £5 per person is the suggested minimum. Please do so as early as possible, as a rush of requests just before the gig may result in some people missing the start.
2. When we have received notification of your donation we will send you an email with instructions on how to view the livestream. Please note that this is not an automated process. Our volunteers may not respond immediately. Also remember that our message will go to the email account associated with your payment which may not be the one you usually use.
3. We recommend that you access and save the link as soon as you receive our instructions. On Friday 14 August ‘doors open’ at 7.45pm to give you time to check your set up, get comfortable and chat with other members of the audience.
