Kate Rusby at Theatre Royal

3 December 16 words: Ash

During the Victorian era many carols were banned from churches for being too happy and exuberant, so the good folk of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire did what any self respecting citizens would do – they got some musicians and vocalists together and went down the pub instead. Singing their own versions of familiar carols whilst the mead and ale flowed.

Kate Rusby celebrates this Yorkshire-inspired tradition every year with her special Christmas concert, touring for over fifteen years it’s a lovely way to celebrate the festive period and get those warm, fuzzy feelings flowing.

Her Nottingham show is at the Theatre Royal on Wednesday 21 December and includes a variety of musicians and a brass quintet.     

Proud to define herself as a folk singer but Kate has always moved with the genre and introduced more modern styles to her songs.

Recognised by the industry on many occasions: a Mercury Prize nominee, Folk Singer of the Year, Best Live Act, Best Album and Best Original Song winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

The show will feature tracks from Kate’s third Christmas album released in 2015 and songs and carols from all three Christmas releases, together with selections from her 2016 release “Life in a Paper Boat”, Kates’ 14th studio album launched on October 7th.

Kate Rusby, Wednesday 21 December, 7:30pm, £25.
Tickets available from Theatre Royal website
