Kate Rusby in Concert
‘Folk music doesn’t get any cooler than Kate Rusby.’ Q Magazine
The defining voice of contemporary English Folk Music, Kate Rusby’s exquisite interpretations of Traditional songs and finely wrought self-penned tunes have won her an audience that reaches beyond the genre. A rare achievement for a folk artist but entirely understandable given Rusby’s expressive vocals that invest whatever she sings with irresistible emotional depth.
In November 2010 Rusby released her much anticipated new album, Make The Light. Her first record of completely self composed songs, this landmark release has been well received by both critics and fans alike. It features Rusby’s all-new band who – as ever – have been drawn from the cream of Britain’s folk instrumentalists.
Accompanied by these players Rusby will tour in 2011 performing songs from Make The Light together with much loved favourites chosen from across her entire back catalogue. Rusby’s wondrous singing, her hugely engaging Yorkshire wit and her new ensemble’s marvellously intuitive support ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and uplifting concert experience. The combination of original songs and working with new musicians has been a refreshing and rewarding experience for Kate: “Much has happened since the last album was released – and mainly good things! So Make The Light reflects that, mainly songs of hope and possitivity.
Kate is visiting Wyvern Theatre with her all new line-up; Damien O’Kane on guitar, tenor guitar and banjo, Kevin McGuire on double bass, Edmund Boyd on guitar and bouzouki and Julian Sutton on melodeon.
