Kathryn Tickell

Kathryn Tickell (b. 8th June 1967) is an English player of the Northumbrian smallpipes and fiddle. She has recorded over a dozen 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, Billy Pigg 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 Shetland fiddle style who she learned from the virtuoso Shetland fiddle master Tom Anderson at Stirling University's traditional folk summer school. Kathryn has also incorporated the Border pipes into her traditional ensemble. Her family is from the North Tyne Valley area of Northumberland.
