An Afternoon With Rachael Sage
Rachael Sage + Bessie Deakin
Entry Requirements: Under 16s are not permitted in the venue. Under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Rachael Sage is a soulful vocalist, innovative multi-instrumentalist and award-winning singer/songwriter and producer from NY who has earned a loyal international following for her dynamic piano playing, delicate guitar work, and improvisational audience interaction.
A six-time Independent Music Award winner, Sage has toured with an eclectic list of artists including Howard Jones, Beth Hart, Ani DiFranco, and Grammy® winners Shawn Colvin and Judy Collins – with whom she also recorded a critically-acclaimed duet of Neil Young's "Helpless". Her music has been dubbed "wildly expressive" by Paste Magazine, and Stereo Embers described Sage as "the kind of performer you can't take your eyes off". Her 2020 album Character yielded the Billboard-charting single "Blue Sky Days"; her side project Poetica, an adventurous fusion of poetry with jazz, classical and Americana musical elements in the vein of Leonard Cohen and Laurie Anderson, debuted in October 2021.
Her latest single, "Revelation Ground" is out now on MPress/Universal/Virgin. A new full-length album, The Other Side is due in summer 2023. For more information, visit rachaelsage.com.
Support is from the wonderful Bessie Deakin.

Bessie Deakin is ‘Lady Red’ the title track from her EP which tells the timeless story of love, passion and obsession which has recently evolved into a more Jazz style when performed live, making it fitting that the next venue to fall in her path is the Bulls Head Jazz bar. She has performed at The Bedford in Balham and the Half Moon in Putney where she’ll be headlining her own show in August.
She’ll be performing other original material from her EP as well as her next single ‘Preacher in the Hallway’ which will be coming out later this summer. Bessie has a clear and unique voice that will be accompanied by Steve Coghlan on acoustic guitar and harmonica.
