Karine Polwart + Steven Polwart + Inge Thomson
With glowing reviews in for the evocative lyricism and cinematic musical depth of her new album Traces, Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart comes to Durham with her two regular touring collaborators, brother Steven (guitars & vocals) and Fair Islander Inge Thomson (accordion, percussion and vocals).
An outstanding vocal talent making a big impact on the Scottish music scene. 'Melodic and literate songs... her wealth of experience has given her writing a satisfying depth and rounded wisdom'- The Times. Karine Polwart won the Best Original Song & the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Artist at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2005 as well as being twice winner of Best Original Song at the BBC Folk Awards, she's collaborated with King Creosote, Chris Wood, Roddy Woomble, Tim O'Brien and even the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
'Exceptionally subtle and melodic' (Q Magazine).
Karine Polwart tour dates
Hailing from the microscopic, isolated Shetland island of Fair Isle, Inge Thomson grew up immersed in music. Her family are prominent exponents of folk and traditional music and she became involved with a piano keyed accordion at an early age, which eventually led on to even less socially acceptable instruments. Inge brings her innovative vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental textures to her solo gigs.
