One of the British folk scene's best-loved artists and the voice of contemporary English folk music.
Over the last twenty five years and more Kate Rusby’s expressive vocals and sharp Yorkshire wit have made her one of the country’s favourite folk musicians. A Mercury prize nominee and BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year, she is renowned as one of the finest interpreters of folksong and as an emotive original songwriter – melding old and new so that you can barely see the join.
Forever proud to call herself a folk singer, Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. These qualities, together with the intuitive support from the cream of British folk musicians who form her band, deliver an unmissable evening’s entertainment.
