Kathryn and Folkestra at BT River of Music, 22 July.

July 21st, 2012

Kathryn Tickell and The Sage Gateshead’s Folkestra ensemble will be performing together as “JigHop”, tomorrow in Trafalgar Square as part of London 2012 Festival’s BT River of Music (tickets are no longer available for this event). If you’re there, post us a comment! Of JigHop, Kathryn says:

“It’s been really interesting watching connections being made through the development of this piece…seeing how traditional clog dancing and B‑Boying actually have common ground and how instruments like Northumbrian pipes and melodeon can work collaborating with a scratch DJ. There are lots of unexpected collaborations in this project, but none that have felt forced to us as performers – throughout the project we have worked only with material that we all feel excited about, and that doesn’t compromise the integrity of our individual traditions or genres, but actually informs and enhances them.”

JigHop comprises of Kathryn Tickell, Folkestra and a selection of professional musicians and artists from the North East including Amy Thatcher, Brendan Murphy, Tom Besford, Robby Graham, Paul Kelly, Mariam Rezaei, Hannabiell Sanders and Kevin Lees.
