Connecting the Irish on Tyneside

Mr Corvan’s Music Hall

Born to Irish parents in 1827, Ned Corvan came to Newcastle in 1831 and became the very first Geordie singer/songwriter superstar. Anti-establishment to the core, Ned wrote around 120 songs and Mr Corvan’s Music Hall is about the life, times and music of arguably the greatest songwriter the region has ever produced.

Written by top North East playwright Ed Waugh and following his successes with Hadaway Harry at Newcastle Theatre Royal and Putney, London, and the brilliant Joe Wilson Night here at the Irish Centre, Mr Corvan’s Music Hall, will tour the region from May 25 to June 10.

Opening at Durham, Gala Theatre, Mr Corvan’s Music Hall, will call in at Whitley Bay Playhouse and Sage Gateshead.

Mr Corvan’s Music Hall stars two of the region’s top actors Chris Connel (Pitman Painters, UK and New York) and Jamie Brown (Culture Award winner for best performance – Hadaway Harry) and former Bellowhead violinist Rachael McShane. Benny Graham (Pitman Poets) and Johnny Handle (folk superstar) have helped with Ned’s brilliant songs. The director is Gareth Tudor Price (former Hull Truck and West End credits).
