Subject: Kathryn Tickell unusual gig

From today's Arts Diary in The Guardian.

Is it possible to write a piece of music for fiddle, sitar, melodeon and Northumbrian small pipes? And would the result be pleasant to listen to? Four composers - Adam Melvin, Laurence Rose, Nick Redfern and Jonathan Booty - have attempted to do just that, combining Indian and British folk traditions for the Folk from Here project at the Cheltenham music festival next month.

Playing the pipes and leading the group is Kathryn Tickell, who has worked on four Sting albums. Marie Fielding will play fiddle, Jonathan Mayer sitar and Julian Sutton melodeon. "It's all been a bit scary," says Tickell, "for the composers as well as us. If you're into very traditional music, this may not be the concert for you."


Unfortunately, I can't make Cheltenham, but I'm sure someone will report back.

Phil

Now this what music is all about, adventurous, bold, the bringing together of two traditions. It is to be hoped that something like this will be recorded and be made available.

I love that quote from Kathryn Tickell, "...If you're into very traditional music, this may not be the concert for you."

I know a certain poster on Mudcat who certainly won't approve :-D

Dont forget that Roger Watson has been involved in 'mixing' various traditions for a LONG time - His current band will be at Sidmouth if no where else this year !

I've heard KT perform "traditional music" several times, and I like IT.

I tell you what, Kathryn does not get as much credit for being experimental as I think she deserves. This combo sounds intriguing, but then again, Kathryn's played pipes with harmonica, sax, brass, and worked her pipes into songs by Sting and The Oysterband, not all of them "ENGLISH"!

I was really excited to be going to see this collection of musicians recently at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. I think it has tremendous potential and I really wanted it to work but I have to say I simply enjoy KT and all the other people she has played with playing Northumbrian tunes.

I think the mix of Indian and English instruments sound fantastic together but I guess it's hard for anybody to write great music that can compare with the tunes that have been written hundreds of years ago and have been evolving ever since.

In the end you listen and it hits you - a lot, a bit or not at all. For me it was some wher between a lot and a bit. Lets hope this is the start of many collaborations, parts of it were really exciting.

I really wish I could be in Cheltenham to hear and see this, which is why I noted that it should be recorded and made available

You go up to Kathryn and tell her that you like how English her music is.

Go on, I dare you..

(hint: she didn't call an album "debatable lands" for nothing)

it's ok if they use an odd assortment of instruments, just so long as they all stick to playing one-note melody together, and don't try to pass off any of that harmonized stuff as traditional...

The Lemon says, "Am I right in thinking these are all posted by men again?"

But of course you're not right.

Me? Female, The same age as Sandy Denny would have been had she lived (you do the maths) and I'm a performing musician, and, anyway, what the hell has the poster's genders got to do with anything?
