Royal Northern Sinfonia tour dates
The Telegraph describes her as, 'one of the best living advertisements for English folk music'. That she is in a class of her own cannot be doubted. By thirteen she could play the smallpipes and fiddle exceptionally well. She has released several albums, toured the globe several times and recorded with artists such as Sting, The Chieftains and Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
'To say that Kathryn Tickell plays pipes is like saying Shakespeare was a bit of a writer' (Living Tradition)..
