MINI TUSK: How To Measure Success As An ‘Outsider’ Panel Discussion

How to measure success as an 'outsider' in discussion with Mariam Rezaei, Hannabiell Sanders, Helena Celle and Cath Taylor.

We’ll be discussing how to measure success as an underground artist – and challenging ‘is being an outsider a help or a hindrance?’

Our panel will be exploring how artists can manage and measure their goals when creating and releasing music that sits outside the mainstream. 

Led by Mariam Rezaei, in conversation with Hannabiell Sanders, Helena Celle and Cath Taylor

Mariam Rezaei is an award winning composer, turntablist and performer.   She leads experimental arts project TOPH in Newcastle.

Hannabiell Sanders is a bass trombonist, an African hand percussionist, and a composer. She is a progressive music teacher who strives to teach her students different ways of using their voices to build and make unified communities through music

Helena Celle is the electronic music alter-ego of Kay Logan, who has emerged as one of the most exciting talents and deepest thinkers on the Scottish music scene

Cath Tyler plays Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle alongside Phil Tyler. Coming together musically through a shared love of traditional narrative song, full voiced sacred harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London and a dank tower in the old city walls of Newcastle.
