‘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 2012
“ …. exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit” Daily Telegraph 2012
Of all the stars in Folk Music’s wondrous firmament few shine as brightly as Yorkshire’s Kate Rusby.
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, of touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination.
After a busy year celebrating twenty years in the music industry in 2012, Kate returns in Summer 2013 to a few carefully selected festivals before embarking on her ever popular Autumn tour in mid September.
Audiences are sure to be thoroughly entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue stretching over her two decades of music making.
As ever, Kate will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents: Damien O’Kane on guitar, tenor guitar and banjo, Duncan Lyall on double bass, Aaron Jones on guitar and bouzouki and Nick Cooke on melodeon.
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 and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.
