The former composer, singer and fiddle player of The Kittiwakes launched her new solo album Closer to Home in June 2012 focusing her writing closer to heart and home. Expect songs of tragedy and injustice, love and hope—and the odd talking bird thrown in for good measure! Kate is no stranger to performing live, captivating audiences with the stories she weaves and gorgeous fiddle-based tunes.

What people are saying about Kate Denny

“a gently poignant and increasingly haunting musical delight”

[fRoots magazine]

“Denny is the owner of a truly striking voice, clear as a mountain stream and perfect of diction, and her own accompaniment on viola and violin, alongside (Charlie) Skelton, who also plays guitar and Northumbrian smallpipes, really brings her songs to life…a very fine album.”

[Gerry Ransom, R2 **** review]

“Closer To Home is a showcase of beautiful lyrics and evocative storytelling.”

[Bright Young Folk]
