The Kittiwakes are now sadly disbanded, but were Kate Denny on vocals, Chris Harrison on accordion and Jill Cumberbatch on violin, mandolin, banjo and guitar. We were very lucky to have them at the Goose whilst they were still together!
Paul Collier of the Leigh Folk Festival described their music as “delicious, intriguing and evocative, beautifully played and sung by this talented trio.”
‘Absolutely wonderful – Folk and Roots Online
Their EP “Lofoten calling” is original music based around the people, landscape, folklore and history of the Lofoten Islands, an area above the Arctic Circle in Norway. The music is song based, and influenced by traditional British Isles and Norwegian folk music.
