Kathryn Tickell & the Darkening

  • This event has now passed

Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland and England invoke the dark, powerful, shamanic sounds of Ancient Northumbria and broadcast them to the modern world. 

Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten countryside along Hadrian’s Wall, which seems so quintessentially Northumbrian…and yet, almost 2000 years ago that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs.

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude. 

Kathryn Tickell – Northumbrian pipes, fiddle, voice 
Amy Thatcher – accordion, voice, clog dancing
Josie Duncan – voice, harps
Kieran Szifris – octave mandolin
Joe Truswell – drums, percussion
