Kate Young to play at New Mills

Award-winning Scottish fiddle player and singer Kate Young plays New Mills Town Hall on June 23, as part of her tour with French folk-dance accordionist Raphaël Decoster, performing works from their new album Les Objets Trouvés.

Kate, pictured right, is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger and composer, who weaves sounds from different lands into captivating new soundscapes.

As part of the Songs of Separation collaborative project she recently won Best Album at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

She is currently receiving plaudits in the national and theatre press for her musical performance in a new production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester.

Raphaël Decoster is an accordion player and visual artist from Lille, in France. He plays with French Bal-folk (folk dance) band Zlabya, and the duo Peut-être Jeanne.

Kate and Raphael share a love and talent for music, crafts, film-making and animation. Their multi-dimensional and coalescent visualisations of the arts, along with their diverse cultural perspectives, inspire compositions and instrumental dialogues that are truly unique.
