James Newby collected droves of new supporters when he stood in at the last minute to open last year’s Festival. The Ilkley Gazette commented upon Newby’s ‘lustrous dark baritone’ and praised his ‘remarkable insight’ and ‘genius for storytelling’ at what was a highlight of the 2019 Festival. BBC New Generation Artist, Newby, together with Middleton, offer a programme of wandering and romanticism before they tour the programme to Wigmore Hall, Vienna, Brussels, Budapest, Lisbon, Baden-Baden, Stockholm, Cologne, Amsterdam and Hamburg.
