On the Saturday evening, will be the former Runrig singer and frontman, Donnie Munro, who commented: "I am really looking forward to performing at Trad on the Tyne. I have very strong links with the area and know the town very well, having recorded so many of my albums with Runrig just along the road at Castlesound Studios in Pencaitland.
“I have been performing a series of acoustic shows both in Denmark and here in Scotland, including this year's Celtic Connections,and it has been a really fantastic opportunity to present songs from across my musical career both with Runrig and from my own solo albums in a different and more intimate way.
“I have been working with acoustic guitarist,Eric Cloughley, who has also engineered and produced some of my most recent albums, and the young rising star of Scottish traditional fiddle music, the current Glenfiddich Fiddle Champion, Maggie Adamson, from Shetland. This combination has worked brilliantly and they both bring fantastic musicality to the presentation of the songs.
“I am really looking forward to sharing this with the Trad on the Tyne audience."
