Location: Huntingdon Hall
Date: Wednesday 17th May
Channelling their diverse musical experiences into a powerful new sound, The Side stay true to the spirit and essence of Kathryn’s own Northumbrian folk tradition whilst unleashing the talent and creativity of each individual musician. Evocative slow airs that could break your heart move seamlessly into life-affirming jigs and reels; Amy storms into a clog dance; Kathryn’s dizzying rapid-fire piping contrasts with the richness of the cello and Ruth’s sparkling harp playing melds it all together – a very special evening is in store in the company of Kathryn and The Side.
Kathryn Tickell - Northumbrian pipes, fiddle
Louisa Tuck - cello (Principal Cellist, Oslo Filharmonien)
Ruth Wall - harp (Goldfrapp, Fitkin)
