Kate & Raphaël - Edinburgh

Kate Young and Raphaël Decoster together form an exciting blend of original and folk-influenced music. The French accordion dialogs with the Scottish fiddle and Kate's voice with an intimate spontaneity, which invites us to discover their hidden stories and landscapes.

They create melodies and songs through their interest for visual arts as well as traditional musics, and this atypic combination is the base of their fresh and poetical music.

Kate is also known for her work with Songs of Separation (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 'Album of the Year'), as well as Eliza Carthy MBE in - Carthy, Oates, Farrell & Young, and her own band, Kate in the Kettle.

Raphaël is from Lille in the North of France and plays with French Bal-folk band, Zlabya and duo Peut-être Jeanne.

The duo will release their first album, les objets trouvés in June accompanying a UK tour. This will be the release of their album recorded and produced by Tim Lane.
