Kathryn Tickell: Northumbrian Voices presented by North Tyneside Council
Monday 29th October 2012
Kathryn Tickell is the foremost exponent of the Northumbrian pipes whose work is deeply rooted in the landscape and people of Northumbria. This show is based on interviews and recordings Kathryn has done over the years with family members and the shepherd musicians from whom she learnt including mouth organ player Will Atkinson and fiddler Willie Taylor. Three generations of musicians are on stage, including Kathryn’s father, promising a powerful reflection of rural communities, their music and collective stories.
“This is beautiful and important work." David Almond, author (Skellig, Kit's Wilderness).
Directed by Kathryn Tickell and Annie Rigby (Unfolding Theatre)
