Yorkshire based Teacher of Celtic and Traditional Folk Music, Specialising in Uilleann (Irish) and Northumbrian Small Pipes, Fiddle and Tin Whistle. Uilleann/Northumbrian Piper & Multi-Instrumentalist for hire.
All go at BT HQ this week gearing up for the first gigs with the fabulous KUSCHTY RYE chaps. You can catch them this week in and around Halifax (and Barnoldswick!) with more in the pipeline somewhat further afield, so catch them local while you can!
KUSCHTY RYE is DES HORSFALL….. with an array of wonderful guest musicians. This line-up features the solid backline grooves of Hugh Bradley on Bass and Dylan Pepper on drums, the mighty Chris Preston on Guitars, Jason Offen on Keys, and Becky will be adding fiddle, mandolin and a sprinkling of low whistle and concertina.
The creation of the band KUSCHTY RYE and albums ‘The Good Gentleman’s Tonic’ and ‘The Bastard’s Tin’ were directly inspired by the work of British musician & songwriter Ronnie Lane; specifically from his ‘Slim Chance’ period after he split with The Faces.
