Katie, of Katie Doherty and the Navigators, said: “It’s been a while since I’ve been on the road, and I’m so thrilled to be able to play tracks from my new album and embark on this string on live dates. There’s nothing quite like performing to a live audience and I can’t wait to play for people at St Hilda's Parish Hall.”

And Then and the accompanying UK tour marks the start of a sparkling new chapter for Katie Doherty. Back in 2007, she became an award-winning songwriter, and released her debut solo album Bridges to much acclaim - including airplay from BBC Radio 2.

This led Katie to share stages with the likes of Karine Polwart, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, and Ray Davies. She has recorded and toured with German based, British folk band Broom Bezzums for the past six years.

Catch Katie and The Navigators at St Hilda's Parish Hall, Whitby on Friday May 10.
