Kate Rusby (Historic Lavenham Church, Suffolk)

‘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

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.

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 together with a selection of fresh new songs from her new album release date 17th May 2019. 

As ever, she 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, electric tenor guitar and banjo
Duncan Lyall on double bass and moog
Nick Cooke on diatonic accordion
Steve Byrnes on bouzouki 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 and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.
