The poetic power of music and language combine in "Tales & Tunes" by Kathryn and the writer David Almond. They're writing, composing and rehearsing over the next couple of months, together with accordionist Amy Thatcher and director Max Roberts of Live Theatre. It's all very exciting - and Arts Council England awarded funding towards its development, which makes a big difference. If you enjoyed "Northumbrian Voices" this is the show for you! See live dates for tour details.
One of the most magical settings for a festival must be Lindisfarne and this year's Holy Island Festival is headlined by Kathryn & Superfolkus. A special guest at this concert is 12 year old Abbey Tilley, winner of two trophies for her dialect singing at the recent 2017 Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering, and who has also been getting singing advice from a certain Mike Tickell! The festival programme is carefully timed to allow for the high tide which covers the causeway to the mainland twice a day. If there is any slight fluctuation in tide times, fear not! – the band will simply play faster.
