KATE IN THE KETTLE
Kate in the Kettle is the name given to a shape-shifting line-up of international musicians, predominately led by Scottish folk singer, fiddler and composer, Kate Young.
After a successful showcase of her 'New Voices' commission at Celtic Connections in January, 2016 sees Kate joined by an exciting new line-up with fresh songs arranged for string quintet which explore the folkloric traditions surrounding plant medicine. Launched at Umefolk festival, Sweden in February, the stellar musicians draw upon their diverse and rich musicianship which has been cultivated through meeting in the "Ethno" movement. These include Sofia Högstadius (SE), Claudia Schwab (AT) , Barja Drnovsek (SLO) and Toby Kuhn (FR/USA). Each musician while stylistically defined in their own right, come together to create a quite unique performance.
