Singer/songwriter Yvonne Lyon is the latest artist to return to north Northumberland to play a house-concert.

The hotly-tipped talent is set to perform tomorrow night at St Cuthbert’s House in Seahouses at 7.30pm.

Lyon is widely regarded as belonging firmly among the best and brightest talent currently emerging from the UK.

Her new album, These Small Rebellions, features songs co-written with Boo Hewerdine, Andrew Howie and David Lyon plus special guest appearances from Emily Smith, Cara Luft, Steph Macleod and Seonaid Aitken.

BBC Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris is a big fan and describes listening to Yvonne’s music as ‘a life-affirming experience’.

She has consistently stirred audiences across the UK and beyond with her emotive performances, combining poignant lyrics with creative melodies and demonstrating a voice that can be both fragile and powerful.

During 2014, she has shared the stage with Eddi Reader, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Patti Griffin, Karine Polwart, Luka Bloom, Steve Forbert, Juliet Turner and IONA.

Host Jeff Sutheran said: “We first heard Yvonne supporting a big name in a large arena and she captivated that huge audience with a beautiful performance.

“She played for us almost two years ago and we’re delighted that she’s coming back following the amazingly successful year she’s having.”

Tickets for the concert cost £10 and are available by calling 01665 720456.

The house-concert is the latest in the series at St Cuthbert’s House, a restored former church, now a B&B.
