SINGER-songwriter Rae Morris is set to headline Middlesbrough Live, which will see performances from more than 100 North-East music acts.

The Town Hall Crypt will play host to the main stage with smaller town centre venues hosting local and regional bands on Saturday, September 27.

Miss Morris, who headlined the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds festivals this weekend, will be supported Woodpigeon and Withered Hand.

She recently toured the UK with both Tom O’Dell and Bombay Bicycle Club, having featured on three tracks on the latter’s number one album, ‘So Long, See You Tomorrow’.

Earlier in the day the crypt will host a free-entry afternoon session featuring vocals by Famy, the four-piece Model Aeroplanes, emerging indie rock ‘n’ rollers Violet Deep and young local band, Steal Strings.

Local bars Mink, Walkabout, The Lobby, O’Connell’s and The Central are joined this year by Dr Brown’s in putting on a treat for Teesside music-lovers when they host acts throughout the day and evening.

Headline act at The Central pub will be popular North-East band The Lake Poets, while headlining Walkabout will be Hyde & Beast, the Futureheads/Golden Virgins drummers Dave Hyde and Neil Bassett.

As with last year’s event, Mima Live will see Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art host musical performances.

Discounted tickets to the evening event on Middlesbrough Live’s main stage in the Town Hall Crypt are available now, priced £8 each or £6 if revellers 'like' Middlesbrough Live on Facebook.

They are available from Middlesbrough Town Hall Box Office, Albert Road, Middlesbrough, by calling 01642-729729 or emailing boxoffice@middlesbrough.gov.uk. Entry to all other venues will be free of charge.
