Amy Thatcher and Francesca Knowles

Trailblazing accordion and percussion duo from Newcastle upon Tyne, Thatcher and Knowles
defy the preconceptions of what their instruments can do, breaking with tradition while tactfully
adopting it as a foundation for playful experimentation. Their live show is one of both raucous
energy and sympathetic intensity, incorporating drums, synths, keys and vocals into an
unapologetic brew of colourful and creative composition.

Their debut album ‘Emergency of the Female Kind’ showcases a spectrum of humanness rarely captured in just 46 minutes and the pair’s undaunted attitude to kicking off a genre revolution.

‘Together, they have a mesmerising energy that will be great to witness live’ – Folk Radio UK
‘Brimming with invention and energy. Together they’re dynamite’ – The Crack
‘Perverse, and often fantastic’ – MOJO
