The new album by Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening has been released into the wild! In celebration, a new video has been released to accompany a track from the album: ‘One Night in Moaña’. Kathryn, the band and festival-goers enjoy a night of music and friendship at the Festival Intercéltico do Morrazo in Galicia.
On Friday September 1st Kathryn appears live on national television on BBC Breakfast, on location at Lindisfarne Festival. Situated on the north east coast of England, the festival site overlooks the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Kathryn and her band The Darkening perform on the Main Stage later that day.
