Forever proud to call herself folk singer, Kate Rusby’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience.
Famously down to earth, for over twenty years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere. And it is in her special Christmas concerts that all these elements combine to exquisite effect.
After over fifteen years of enchanting audiences up and down the land, Kate’s Christmas tour has, for many, become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself! Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band – joined as ever by a sublime brass quintet – embody the sounds and joyous spirit of the best Christmases ever!
Kate’s happiness, her humour and her storytelling are a feature of her live shows. Each auditorium becomes her pub or her front room, and we are her welcomed and well-cared-for guests. Hugely spirited but undoubtedly family affairs, Kate’s concerts celebrate what makes Christmas so special and so much fun as she and her fellow musicians perform fabulous songs brimful of the goodwill and spirituality of the season and in doing so put smiles on faces and joy in our hearts.
To date, Kate has released four albums of songs and carols from this marvellous Yorkshire-inspired tradition and this year’s Christmas tour will mainly showcase tracks from her new Christmas album Holly Head release date 29 November 2019.
