Folk darling Kate Rusby for UCH gig

English folk singer Kate Rusby plays the UCH this coming Monday night

ENGLISH folk singer and songwriter Kate Rusby plays a show at the University Concert Hall this weekend.

The Mercury Music Prize nominee plays the venue on Monday night. Rusby, who is 24 years on the road, is acclaimed as “one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk song” and an emotive original songwriter who is the darling of British Folk.

She recently released her 14th studio album Life in a Paper Boat – an album, produced by her husband Damien O’Kane, that she describes as “a wonderful journey of discovery for myself as a music maker”.

“I used to think songs had more space with less going on around them, but actually by widening the sonic perimeter we made a larger space for the songs to thrive.”

Her singing and engaging Yorkshire wit, coupled with the intuitive support of her live band, should make for a remarkable concert.
