Kathryn Tickell started playing the Northumbrian Pipes at the age of nine, and now – well, in the words of Living Tradition, “To say that Kathryn plays pipes is like saying that Shakespeare was a bit of a writer”.

Today, though, she’s just one member of The Darkening: an all-star folk band rooted in the tales and melodies of Northumberland, but with an international outlook and an unmistakably contemporary attitude.
