“What We Do” - Kathryn & Peter Tickell

(Hope to get back to this one soon…)

What We Do - Kathryn & Peter Tickell

What it says on the tin - a compilation of numbers played by Kathryn and her brother Peter, who have often done gigs as a duo. Kathryn plays Northumbrian pipes and fiddle, Peter plays fiddle and guitar, and there are rare vocals from Kathryn, who sings “Here’s The Tender Coming” and “Willie’s Away To Jeddart”, and recites a touching verse monologue called “The Master’s Hand”.

All very nicely done and played. This was issued by Resilient Records in 2008.

You’re not going to get many tunes to link through to those on this database, if you include the composer names! Comments section is the place for that, if you want to inclde that info.

Kathryn and Peter Tickell - “What We Do” - Some good stuff on here!.

On listening more to this album, one tune in particular hit me as startlingly good - Kathryn’s composition Allery Burn, a slip jig that she plays fast on Northumbrian pipes with Peter accompanying on guitar. Every now and then she really does hit gold as a composer, and Allery Burn is one of the hits as far as I am concerned.

I agree with Nicholas -- the Allery Burn set is wonderful. Must get round to transcribing it… 😉
