Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening

Mar 07, 2018

'The Darkening’ is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band’s music blazes fiercely! 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. The Darkening's world premiere is at Norfolk & Norwich Festival on 21 May (booking opens 8 March). See live dates for more performances.
