The Best Of Kathryn Tickell


The Best of Kathryn Tickell' is a two-disc set containing the highlights of Northumbrian piper, fiddle player and composer, Kathryn Tickell. It seems a particularly fitting release since the globally acclaimed Northumbrian musician was awarded the prestigious Queen's Medal for Music this year. Following on from this award, Kathryn will have a very special celebration at the Sage Gateshead in December with special guest Sting amongst others. Kathryn Tickell is a composer, performer and successful recording artist whose work is deeply rooted to the landscape and people of Northumbria. She also works collaboratively across many genres, making her work contemporary and exciting, and putting her firmly at the forefront of the current folk music revival. In 2008 she became the first folk musician in history to be commissioned to write a piece for the BBC Proms. It was written for Folkestra, Muzsikás, London Sinfonietta and London Young Musicians. One of the foremost composers of our time and Master of the Queen's Music, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, composed a piece especially for Kathryn, commissioned by The Sage Gateshead and premiered with musicians from Northern Sinfonia in October 2006 and aired on BBC Radio 3. Winner of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award's Musician of the Year in 2005, Kathryn was the subject of a Channel 5 television documentary 'Kathryn Tickell's Northumbria' and has made numerous TV and radio appearances. In July 2007, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by University of Northumbria for her outstanding and inspirational achievements.
