NY Times: Sting Performs at The Public Theatre

Singing in a chanteylike cadence but in a minor key, his silvery voice taking on a northern brogue, Sting fleshed out a scene much like the one he’d just described. He hailed both the royalty and the rabble, “whatever the station in life you’ve become.” All were gathered there, he sang, for the heaving spectacle, “As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea.”

This was the first of his 10 nights to benefit the Public, in its 260-seat Anspacher Theater. He performed songs from “The Last Ship” with most of the album’s core personnel — who hail, as he does, from northeastern England — including the Wilson Family, a fraternity of stentorian folk singers; Julian Sutton, a specialist on melodeon, a button accordion; and the violinists Kathryn and Peter Tickell, siblings who mainly played violin.
