Kathryn Tickell & Amy Thatcher
The incredibly successful folk performer, Northumbrian piper and composer Kathryn Tickell returns to Oundle with accordion player and clog dancer, Amy Thatcher (last seen in Oundle with The Shee in 2015). 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 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.
