Kate Rusby

Kate Rusby holds a special place in the hearts of UTSf. As many of you will know, the festival is named after one of her most famous songs and put together by the family production team that runs her record company and supports her live work. A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate’s soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Inhabiting a lyric with unforced conviction – no matter how old or how modern – she has that rare ability to transport her audience, of touching them emotionally and making each tune live vividly within their experience and imagination. You are sure to be thoroughly entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue stretching over her two decades of music making together with a selection of fresh new songs from her latest brilliant album Philosophers, Poets & Kings, which was released in 2019. As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents.
