Episode #2: Departures
The theme for this latest episode is departures – musical, historical and political departures.
We meet progressive rock trio Arcane Roots, who left safety behind and learned new instruments in their search for a more cinematic, electronic sound.
We call broadcaster and author Stuart Maconie to find out what he packed on his long march from Jarrow.
And we embark on our own journey of exploration, in the foothills of classical music with Ruth Rosales and Bradley Creswick.
Backstage is a regular podcast where we go behind the scenes for exclusive interviews and insights from leading and emerging artists who’ll be taking to the stage at Sage Gateshead, and discover some of the activities that take place, and the communities that meet there.
