Kate is at ease playing to 50 people in a folk club or 20,000 people at festivals such as Cambridge. Her increasing popularity means she is in demand throughout the UK and Europe. Growing up in a rich atmosphere of unaccompanied singing has led to a distinctive solo voice. Kate accompanies herself on guitar and piano and audiences will remember her for her dry Yorkshire humour that decorates her performance.
Kate Rusby is steeped in her local traditions and tonight showcases the carols and songs learnt through childhood in her native South Yorkshire. Come along to hear new variations of familiar carols mostly unheard outside the area together with a selection of old favourites.
