The Kaje talks Latitude to Beth Jeans Houghton

Newcastle’s Beth Jeans Houghton was first tipped for the top by the Observer Music Monthly in July 2009. The sweet folkstress has since supported pretty much everyone who is anyone on tour – from Adem through to Tinariwen! This summer she joins the diverse line-up at Latitude, so we at The Kaje thought we’d find out a little bit more…

When you think of Latitude what five words spring to mind?

Angular, distance, equator, surface & meridian.

If you could only see one performance at this year’s festival what would it be?

What five items will you be bringing to Latitude?

A drummer, a bassist, a trumpet player, a violinist and a plastic underwater action sampler camera. Definitely.

Do you have anything special planed for your performance at Latitude?

Well we’re currently working on a version of ‘Jake the peg’ by Rolf Harris. My violin player is a plastic surgeon and my drummer’s flatmate is a carpenter so together they’re working together on making the entire band ‘trilimbual’.

Latitude is five years old, how did you celebrate your fifth birthday?
