Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

Reviews

    Details

    Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland, Ireland and England invoke the dark, powerful, sounds of Ancient Northumbria and broadcast them to the modern world.

    Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten countryside along Hadrian’s Wall, which seems so quintessentially Northumbrian…and yet, almost 2000 years ago that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs.

    Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude.

    Fresh sounds merge with ancient influences. Expansive sonic textures are created. Dazzling duets from Kathryn’s pipes and Amy’s accordion contrast with the riffs and rhythms of Kieran’s octave mandolin. Intrepid world-traveller Kate adds her fearless explorations. The inventive use of drums and percussion unites the ensemble.
