The Brothers Gillespie
Thursday, May 28th 2020 7:30pm
Doors open at 7pm
The Brothers Gillespie are a traditional folk song duo from Northumberland, whose music combines searing sibling vocal harmony with arrangements of guitar, fiddle, mandolin and shruti box. Their repertoire spans material from Scotland, Northumberland, England, Ireland, the traveler tradition, border ballads and their own compositions. Strongly rooted in place, they descend beneath the national boundaries to find the common ground beneath us and to draw new power in the retelling of our histories. In their music you can hear the voice of this land and feel the power of the deep Celtic taproot that lies beneath.
All tickets £10

Kate Slaughter Textiles
September 2020 daily 10am until 5:00pm in the Long Room
After a very popular exhibition in 2019, Kate returns with her amazing creations in textiles. She is inspired by the beauty of Northumberland and loves nature, especially flowers.
“Fabric scraps and mixed media create the foundations for my embroidery; hand dyed fabrics are used to create the textures and hand dyed threads are embroidered into my work to add definition using both machine and hand embroidery.
The heart of my work is created from very small pieces that are joined together to create a rugged background texture, this represents how our lives are crammed with many things that we should bring together to enhance the quality of life.”
