“Her voice remains a thing of extraordinary beauty.” - MOJO
One of the finest interpreters of traditional folk song and one of our most emotive original songwriters - melding old and new so you can barely see the join. Mercury Prize Winner. Folk Singer of the Year, Best Live Act, Best Album and Best Original Song winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Inveterate Yorkshire Tea drinker. Freeman of Barnsley. Darling of British folk.
It seems impossible but 2017 will be a landmark year for Kate Rusby as she celebrates an incredible 25 years on the road. Still basking in the glow of the accolades for her 14th studio album, Life in a Paper Boat, she will continue to showcase tracks from the album alongside carefully selected much loved classics from her back catalogue spanning the 25years.
Joining her on stage for this special evening will be the fabulous British folk musicians who form her band:
Damien O'Kane - Guitar, Tenor Guitar and Banjo
Duncan Lyall - Double Bass
Nick Cooke - Diatonic Accordion
Steve Byrnes - Bouzouki, Tenor Guitar and Guitar
The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. Rusby’s wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit combined with the intuitive support of the band, ensures that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.
