Kathryn Tickell & the Darkening

Kathryn Tickell & the Darkening

Dazzling duets from Kathryn’s pipes and Amy’s accordion contrast with the riffs and rhythms of Kieran’s octave mandolin.

‘The Darkening’ is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band’s music blazes fiercely…. Kathryn Tickell – Northumbrian smallpipes, fiddle, voice Cormac Byrne – percussion Joe Truswell – drums Kate Young – fiddle, voice Amy Thatcher – accordion, synths, voice, clog dancing Kieran Szifris – octave mandolin Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland, Ireland and England invoke the dark, powerful, sounds of Ancient Northumbria. They embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude. Fresh sounds merge with ancient influences. Expansive sonic textures are created. Dazzling duets from Kathryn’s pipes and Amy’s accordion contrast with the riffs and rhythms of Kieran’s octave mandolin. Intrepid world-traveller Kate adds her fearless explorations.
