“Her voice remains a thing of extraordinary beauty” Mojo magazine 2011
Long recognised as her generation’s most outstanding interpretive singer of traditional material” R2 magazine 2011
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.
2012 heralds a landmark year for Kate being her 20th year in the music industry. After a quiet first half of the year concentrating on writing and recording a new album to celebrate this anniversary, and taking a little time out for the arrival of her second child, Kate will begin touring again in late Summer.
These concerts will echo the sentiments of her new album revisiting some old favourites with new ideas along with a sprinkling of much loved classics from her back catalogue. As ever, Kate will be joined on stage by the brilliantly talented musicians who form part of her band.
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.
