“Britain’s most celebrated traditional musician and the world’s foremost virtuoso on the Northumbrian pipes.” The Times

Channelling their diverse musical experiences into a powerful new sound, The Side stay true to the spirit and essence of Kathryn’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 and The Side in the beautiful setting of Stapleford Granary.
