Kate in the Kettle – Swimmings Of The Head

Kate Young Joins Forces With Marit Fält On Tour To Accompany The Release Of Beautiful New Album

Kate in the Kettle embraces old customs with new ideas, merging sounds from different places and weaving them into their own tune.  Whilst drawing upon past folk music traditions, the songs written by Scottish singer and instrumentalist Kate Young are driven by her passion to cultivate public awareness connected to many environmental issues.  After their latest single ‘Green and Gold’ was released in May this year, Kate now turns her attention to releasing a new album called Swimmings Of The Head, on the 10th of October this year. The album title comes from a quote from the 16th century British herbalist, Nicholas Culpeper.

Kate Young combines her voice with her fiddle to make tapestries; music woven from different folk traditions with a base in Scottish fiddle playing and a strong environmental viewpoint that reflects a creative fire within this captivating and inspiring artist.  Growing up near Edinburgh, her passion for her music has taken her to tour Europe and Australia as part of world music group ‘Ethno in Transit’; to performing alongside Mercury Award-nominee Eliza Carthy in the all-female fiddle-singers band 'Carthy, Hardy, Farrell and Young'. She is now also a member of eclectic Brighton-based band, 'Moulettes'.

Originally from Sweden/Norway, Marit Fält will join Kate on tour this October playing the beautiful låt-mandola (a specially Swedish designed bass mandola).  Marit is also known from her playing in Vamm (Catriona MacDonald, Patsy Reid) and duo Marit & Rona.  Kate and Marit met whilst studying together in Newcastle Univeristy's Folk Music degree and are excited to release Swimmings of the Head, which was produced by Andy Bell and features musicians from Spain, Estonia and Italy. Kate in the Kettle is eternally grateful for the huge support they received for touring this album through their Indiegogo campaign.
