Manchester Folk Festival 2019: Kate Rusby

Of all the stars in folk music’s wondrous firmament few shine as brightly as Kate Rusby. A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel.

Forever proud to call herself a folk singer, Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that extraordinary ability to transport her audience, and make each tune live vividly within their imagination.

As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her select band, to perform beloved classics from Kate’s back catalogue stretching over her two decades of music-making, together with a selection of fresh new songs from her new album.

Kate’s unique voice and warm Yorkshire wit ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.

This event is part of Manchester Folk Festival – an urban folk festival. It takes place from 16-20 October 2019, in and around HOME and the city centre. Over the autumn weekend, they present an exhilarating range of events, with the spotlight on contemporary and traditional English folk music.
