Never miss another 'Kate Rusby' show
Kate Rusby At Christmas: Kate Rusby
This un-missable evening of entertainment will feature songs from Kate's two albums of Yorkshire-inspired songs and carols. Kate is touring this Christmas season with her hugely talented band, complete with brass quintet – a rousing Christmas celebration!
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.
South Yorkshire has a very strong tradition of carol singing starting early November. Sunday lunchtimes see 100s of carollers cram into various pubs in the locality to join in the unashamedly joyous singing – standing room only! At its heart, it represents an oral tradition, constantly evolving, passed down from generation to generation, with roots dating back over 200 years.
