PODCAST: Backstage: Episode #3 Friends by Sage Gateshead published on 2018-02-26T13:29:23Z Episode #3: Friends The theme for this latest episode is friends. Music brings people together. Friendships form around shared musical passions… but it also has the power to drive people apart. We meet Grammy-nominated Secret Sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers on how their kinship rather than sibling rivalry has helped them overcome musical setbacks. Chris Difford analyses his friendship with Squeeze songwriting partner Glen Tillbrook. And as Royal Northern Sinfonia launches its new season, we have coffee and scones with a couple of members from Friends of Royal Northern Sinfonia to hear how they support the orchestra and its players. 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.
