Many thanks to the 405 for this great review of the full-band set at Evolution Emerging 2014!
Bringing an end to proceedings were The Lake Poets, the moniker of multi-instrumentalist Martin Longstaff who sometimes performs as a solo artist and sometimes with a band – tonight we got both. And anyone who has seen this guy perform will know that he takes you on an emotional roller-coaster and tugs on each and every one of your heartstrings. With his very evident pride in hailing from Sunderland, his spirited and gracefully concocted tracks had us gripped from the get-go. Haunting and intimate it served as the perfect way to end a day in celebration of the great North East’s emerging musical prowess.
