Product Description

Product Description

"I always wished that audiences could meet some of the people that I learnt from; they were such characters". This show feels as if we are letting those people speak". For Kathryn Tickell, the music of her native Northumberland has always been about more than the instruments, the tunes, the songs. It is a culture born from the landscape, the history – and most importantly – the people. It is something that has manifested itself in a career that has spanned nearly thirty years, no matter what aspect of traditional music Tickell has visited since her arrival as a teenager. Now, however, that element to Kathryn's music is being explored as never before. Northumberland Voices is a live show that has sprung from the humblest of beginnings into one of the most ambitious and well received projects of her career. It stemmed from the discovery of a number of cassette tapes, recordings of conversations from key characters from Kathryn's past and a method by which she had learnt the tunes that would form such a large part of her repertoire. Yet there were more to these tapes than just music, they contained stories of and insight into the past – and future – of the place she continues to call home. The idea wasn't without problems, however, with many of the recordings of too poor a quality for anything other than home use. Someone would be needed to read the words on stage and, much as Kathryn tried to ignore it, the obvious answer was her own father Mike. Thus with a band spanning three generations (and an armchair for Tickell Snr to tell his stories from), Nothumberland Voices was born. The tour would take the group across the UK, performing a mixture of a musical concert and stage show (directed by Annie Rigby). Those original recordings would make an appearance at points but otherwise this was the sound of yet another brave new move from one of the country's most imaginative traditional musicians. Now the results are available to all in the shape of her new album. Based on the live show, with a few additions to the sound, Northumberland Voices does exactly what Kathryn Tickell had hoped for all along – giving the people who have influenced her music and way of thinking a wider voice. We think they would approve.

Format: Audio CD
There can be nobody prouder than a father and raconteur (Mike Tickell) witnessing his daughter entertaining an audience from centre stage and in this case the daughter (Kathryn Tickell) vice-versa. That much is obvious from the camaraderie of everyone involved on this wonderfully crafted 2-disk set from those very fine chaps at Park Records. Now, where do you place a recording that would comfortably settle on either an audio book or music CD shelf? Well, for me it sits alongside my previous recordings of her albums of which I profess to own most of them. Although internationally recognised for her achievements in `folk' music circles as one of its major driving forces when it comes to her native Northumbria this beautiful part of the North-East couldn't find a better ambassador. After sifting through many old cassettes Kathryn had the unenviable task of selecting certain recordings that represented her friends, family and neighbours. With respect, that part of the process must have been made easy as all involved impart their wit and wisdom with such convivial jocularity that you'll wish you could have been there in person. For those of us lucky enough to witness the `Border Shepherds' (Willie Taylor, Will Atkinson and Joe Hutton) in the early 80's have much to be thankful for and it's a treat to be reminded of their gentle banter and good humour celebrated by Martin Simpson's song simply titled "Will Atkinson" and sung acapella by the girls. Talking of which...hearty congratulations all round to Tickell's accompanying musicians; Hannah Rickard (fiddle), Kit Haigh (guitar), Patsy Reid (fiddle), Julian Sutton (melodeon), David McCracken (voice) and Amy Thatcher's piano accordion.Read more ›

A superb album with a wonderful mix of song, music and narrative.

I have purchased additional copies of this album to give as gifts

and all have been greatfully received. A lovely example of folk

lore from Northumberland.

Perhaps I am biased having been born in Northumberland but this is one of the most original and enjoyable "folk" albums I have listened to in fifty years as a folk music fan. Well worth the purchase.

Not the best introduction to Ms Tickell but a great treaty for seasoned fans. Quality playing as always with an insight into Ms Tickell's journey and the wild Northumbrian countryside (which was also my childhood home).

I have been to see Kathryn perform this set twice now. Each time, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance, so I decided to buy the CD. This is an exact copy of the live concert so I am vey pleased with it. Great music and entertaining dialogue!
