Tour name: Kate Rusby at Christmas
Kate Rusby is steeped in her local traditions and this concert showcases the carols and songs learnt through childhood in her native South Yorkshire. The evening features new variations of familiar carols mostly unheard outside the area together with a selection of old favourites. Featuring her hugely talented band, complete with brass quintet - this is a rousing Christmas celebration.
South Yorkshire has a very strong tradition of carol singing starting early November. Sunday lunchtimes see hundreds 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.
‘Exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit’
