Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland, Ireland and England invoke the dark, powerful, shamanic sounds of Ancient Northumbria. Inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weatherbitten countryside along Hadrian’s Wall. In a welcome return to Oundle, Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening bring some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude. Kathryn is the world’s foremost exponent of the Northumbrian pipes, a composer, performer and successful recording artist whose work is deeply rooted in the landscape and people of Northumbria. She is joined by Cormac Byrne (percussion), Joe Truswell (drums), Kate Young (fiddle, voice), Amy Thatcher (accordion, synths, voice, clog dancing) and Kieran Szifris (octave mandolin).
Performance ends at approximately 10.00pm
