‘Everybody loves and respects Kate Rusby, not just for her lovely voice, but for the way she has moved folk forward while remaining true to tradition…’ Sunday Times

‘ …. exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit’ – Daily Telegraph

Kate Rusby is often hailed as the ‘first lady of folk’. Announcing herself to the music press in 1999 with a Mercury Music Prize, she has forged an impressive 30-year career, breaking records and headlining everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall to Cambridge Folk Festival.

A remarkable, interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that rare ability to transport her audience, touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination.

Audiences are sure to be thoroughly entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue stretching over the past 30 years of music making, together with a selection of fresh new songs from her most recent albums and new releases including her brand new album ‘30’.

As ever, she will be joined on stage by her band, each a virtuoso in their own right and including her husband and producer Damien O’ Kane. They will be sure to delight you with their exceptional talents.

The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. Her recent reimagined covers album Hand Me Down was her highest charting album to date.

Rusby’s wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.
