Kathryn Tickell & The Side

Tuesday 16th May, Corn Exchange, Newbury RG14 5BD
7.30pm (ends approx 9.30pm)




Kathryn Tickell Northumbrian pipes, fiddle
Louisa Tuck cello
Ruth Wall Scottish harp

Channeling their diverse musical experiences into a powerful new sound, The Side stays true to the spirit and essence of Kathryn Tickell’s own Northumbrian folk tradition whilst unleashing the talent and creativity of each individual musician.


Evocative slow airs that could break your heart move seamlessly into life-affirming jigs and reels; Amy storms into a clog dance; Kathryn’s dizzying rapid-fire piping contrasts with the richness of Louisa’s cello and Ruth’s sparkling harp playing melds it all together. A very special evening is in store in the company of Kathryn Tickell and The Side.
