The queen of the Northumbrian pipes, Kathryn Tickell is also a scintillating fiddle player. For her concert at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester, on Thursday, November 18 at 8pm, she will join forces with some of the UK’s most talented young musicians to present a band full of excitement and vitality.

Kathryn is a composer and performer whose work is deeply connected to the landscape and people of Northumbria, in particular the North Tyne Valley where many of her relatives still play traditional music. Since her first album release in 1986 she has toured extensively throughout the UK and abroad. She has performed with Sting, The Chieftains, The Penguin Café Orchestra, Evelyn Glennie, Andy Sheppard and many others as well as releasing 14 of her own albums.

The Kathryn Tickell Band features Julian Sutton on melodeon, Joss Clapp on acoustic bass guitar, and younger brother Peter Tickell (who also performs with the Peatbog Faeries) on fiddle.

This distinctive quartet provides a characterful setting for Kathryn’s music, matching virtuosity with sheer musicality and creativity. For more information please call the Worcester live Box Office on 01905 611427 or visit www.worcesterlive.co.uk
