Kate & Raphaël – debut album and tour dates

Kate & Raphael

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 music, and this combination is the base of their fresh and poetical music.

Kate is also known for her work with Songs Of Separation (winners of ‘Album of The Year’ at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards), 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.
