Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening appearing at this event

The Darkening’ is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band’s music blazes fiercely. 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. Featuring 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 and broadcast them to the modern world.
