Emerging music talent, Katie Grace Harris from Oxfordshire is heading to the Kingsbridge
Cookworthy Museum on June 22 nd with cellist Andy Nice to stage a concert in the walled
garden. This is part of a collaborative project between Katie and the museum to record and film
Katie’s song Haul Away Hallsands, which is written about Elizabeth Prettejohn and the local
Hallsands tragedy.

Katie explains:
“We visited the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum when I was a child and I was fascinated by
the pictures and stories from Hallsands. Now as an adult and a professional musician I have
returned to these tales from social history as inspiration for my songs. Hallsands was one of the
first stories that I wrote about and it features on my debut album. I am delighted to be working
with the museum to film the finished song, Haul Away Hallsands in the Victorian kitchen and to
play a concert for everyone in the walled garden’.
Katie’s is a folk/acoustic singer-songwriter who weaves her tales using piano, piano accordion,
mountain dulcimer, stomp board and shruti-box. She is joined on cello by Andy Nice who has
played with everyone from Sade to Tindersticks and even Cradle of Filth. The eagle eyed might
also spot him as the cellist in the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. Katie’s music has
been described as:
‘Boot thumping, heart filling, contemporary British folk songs, based on real stories from social
history’
