A FOLK gig is turning out to be one of the hottest tickets in mid-Norfolk as fans rush to catch an international favourite in concert.

Kathryn Tickell is renowned and respected across the British Isles and further afield for her command of the Northumbrian pipes and the fiddle.

And on Friday, February 27 she is joined by her brother Peter, himself a formidable fiddle-player, as they visit All Saints' Church, Welborne.

But, with still more than a month to go to their performance, there are few remaining tickets left for the event, being staged as part of the Village Stage programme of rural concerts co-ordinated by Creative Arts East.

Kathryn, 41, was born into a musical family in the North-East and saw the release of her first album, On Kielder Side, in 1984, the same year in which she was named official piper for the Lord Mayor of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. She turned pro two years later and has since toured Europe and recorded with such acts as The Chieftains, The Boys of the Lough, and Sting.

Her February 27 gig starts at 7.30pm, and there will be a bar at the nearby village hall.
