Kathryn Tickell & the Darkening

Hexham Gathering 2019




Showing at

The Main Theatre

Hexham Gathering 2019
Saturday 25 May 7.00pm

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening / Niamh Boadle / Tam Lin
Tickets: £20 / £15 (under 18s)

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 smallpipes, fiddle, voice
Callum Younger – percussion / Joe Truswell – drums
Kate Young – fiddle, voice / Amy Thatcher – accordion, synths, voice, clog dancing / Kieran Szifris – octave mandolin

Fresh sounds merge with ancient influences. Dazzling duets from Kathryn’s Northumbrian pipes and Amy’s accordion contrast with the riffs and rhythms of Kieran’s octave mandolin. Intrepid world-traveller Kate adds her fearless explorations whilst the inventive use of drums and percussion unites the ensemble.

With support from...

Niamh Boadle
Singer, bodhran player, fiddle player and guitarist Niamh impressed us when she played here with the band Northern Company, so we've asked her back! A multi-instrumentalist and singer who delivers music across a diverse range of material, from traditional folk to her own self-penned compositions, in a variety of styles, Niamh has been immersed in tradition from an early age (in her case not only that of English folk music but those of Irish song, music and dance too!). 

Tam Lin
QHA’s Youth folk band will open the show with their beautiful and mesmerising arrangements of traditional tunes.

Running time:
Doors 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start
Tam Lin Youth Band 7.00pm – 7.20pm
Niamh Boadle 7.25pm – 7.45pm
Interval 7.45pm – 8.00pm
Kathryn & Darkening 8.00pm – 9.20pm
