Gnoss

A dynamic four-piece of fiddle, flute, guitar and percussion, Gnoss tackle energetic tune sets and driving folk song with a ***‘maturity of ability many of a greater age will envy’ ***(The Living Tradition). As current and former students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Graham Rorie, Aidan Moodie, Connor Sinclair and Craig Baxter have been tipped as ‘***ones to watch***’ by Songlines Magazine for their lively, engaging and honest performances.

Forming as a duo in 2015, Graham and Aidan picked up a prestigious Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections and reached the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2016. Since expanding to a four-piece, Gnoss have continued to delight at performances and festivals across the UK and Europe, earning a nomination for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2017. With international touring complimenting the release of their debut album in 2019, all eyes are firmly on this young quartet as they continue to stride forth from the pack.

‘The Darkening’ is the Northumbrian name for twilight, but this band’s music blazes fiercely…

Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland and England invoke the dark, powerful, shamanic sounds of Ancient Northumbria and broadcast them to the modern world. Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten countryside along Hadrian’s Wall, which seems so quintessentially Northumbrian… and yet, almost 2000 years ago that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs.

Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude.

Fresh sounds merge with ancient influences. Expansive sonic textures are created. Dazzling duets from Kathryn’s pipes and Amy’s accordion contrast with the dark and dirty riffs and rhythms of Kieran’s octave mandolin. Intrepid world-traveller Kate adds her fearless explorations and the inventive use of drums and percussion unites the ensemble.

The band members are also known for their work with: Sting, Soumik Datta, The Shee, Monster Ceilidh Band, Songs of Separation,* Carthy, *Oates, *Farrell autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen>

Rebecca Stephens – An Easy Day For A Lady

Rebecca Stephens is the First British Woman to climb Mt Everest and the Seven Summits. She was a successful journalist when, exploring the question ‘why do climbers climb?’, she accompanied an expedition attempting the North East Ridge of Mount Everest in 1989, reaching the first camp at 7,100m. She then made a decision that she wanted to climb the mountain herself.

In 1993, almost exactly 40 years after the first ascent by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, Rebecca achieved that ambition, becoming the first British woman to stand on the summit in the process. In 1994 she became the third woman – and the first British woman – the climb the ‘Seven Summits’.

“I’ve never seen being a woman as an obstacle” Rebecca comments but qualifies that by observing that it is a balancing act between work and family – whatever your job. She goes onto say that her appetite for risk plummeted when she had she first child and wished to be around to nurture and support.

Rebecca’s talk will be largely personal, drawing on her own experiences and observations. For example, upon meeting other women Everesters at Junko Tabei’s 20th anniversary in Japan in 1995. She will also touch on cultural norms and expectations of old about woman climbers, and will refer to other women on Everest and beyond.
