Kate Rusby is steeped in her local traditions and in this concert, she showcases the carols and songs learnt through childhood in her native South Yorkshire. Hear new variations of familiar carols, together with a selection of old favourites.
In this 20th anniversary year of Kate’s career the celebrations continue as this unmissable evening features songs from Kate’s two albums of Yorkshire-inspired songs and carols. Kate visits Symphony Hall this December with her hugely talented band, complete with brass quintet – a rousing Christmas celebration!
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.
South Yorkshire has a very strong tradition of carol singing – it represents an oral tradition, constantly evolving, passed down from generation to generation, with roots dating back over 200 years.
