Kathryn Tickell - Common Ground (1988 England) @320


by request

Kathryn Tickell (b. 1967) is an English player of the Northumbrian smallpipes and 
fiddle. She has recorded eleven albums, and toured widely. Kathryn Tickell took up the smallpipes aged nine, inspired by her family - especially her father Mike, who was heavily involved in the local traditional music scene - and by the music of an older generation of traditional musicians such as Willie Taylor, Will Atkinson, Joe Hutton, Richard Moscrop and Tom Hunter. 
By thirteen, Kathryn had won all the traditional open smallpipes competitions, and was also making a name as an accomplished player of the fiddle. Her family is from the North Tyne Valley area of Northumberland.
Her first album, On Kielder Side, was released in 1984. In the same year she was named the official piper for the Lord Mayor of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Kathryn turned professional in 1986. She has since toured Europe regularly and recorded with internationally-renowned performers like The Chieftains, Boys of the Lough, and Sting.
