    Kathryn Tickell / Two Straylarkers


    The Processed Pea, Etton.

    The Processed Pea

    Not a Shiznitz show but one of Corona’s other projects “Two Straylarkers” with Jim Eldon, will be supporting Kathryn Tickell as a ‘dad and his lass’ return to some of the intimate music venues they performed at – thirty years on-including The Processed Pea.’ Songs, stories, Northumbrian music and a good catch up.

    Mike Tickell and his teenage daughter travelled the length and breadth of the UK in the mid-80s discovering wonderful small music venues crammed full of like-minded music lovers. There was a connection with those audiences that they loved – a unique feeling in the air often lacking in larger venues – the likes of which they have since become more accustomed to. With a hankering to rekindle that experience a limited number of “back to grass roots shows” have been arranged to share stories, songs and memories as a ‘dad and his lass’ return to some of theintimate venues they performed at thirty years or so ago – and meet today’s audiences.
    The Pea is one of those chosen and a nearly secret show has been arranged at the Light Dragoon on Monday 19 October. If you haven’t guessed we are talking about the great Northumbrian piper and fiddler Kathryn Tickell with her dad Mike. Seats are expected to sell out in a flash so be sure to book early for this exciting event.
