Kathryn Tickell & Amy Thatcher

Saturday, 18th March 2017, 8pm

St Peter’s Church, Oundle, PE8 4EE

Northumbrian piper and composer Kathryn Tickell performs with her long-time collaborator Amy Thatcher (accordion, clog dancing). Evocative slow airs that could break your heart move seamlessly into rapid-fire jigs and reels. Amy’s clog steps provide a joyous percussive element. A very special evening is in store with this sparkling duo.

Kathryn Tickell is widely acclaimed as the foremost exponent of the Northumbrian pipes. She is a composer, performer, educator and recording artist whose work is deeply rooted in the landscape and people of Northumbria. She has released 15 of her own albums to date and has also recorded and performed with Sting, The Chieftains, Penguin Café Orchestra, Jon Lord, Evelyn Glennie, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, London Sinfonietta and many others. In 2015 she was awarded the OBE for services to folk music.

Amy Thatcher is an accordionist and clog dancer who has worked with Kathryn on various projects including ‘JigHop’ a multi-genre spectacular commissioned for the 2012 Olympics celebrations. Amy is also a member of The Shee and The Monster Ceilidh Band.

I can’t remember feeling so exhilarated by such a match of music and landscape. Richard Morrison, The Times
