Join Kate Rusby for her hugely popular Christmas tour when she returns to Sage Gateshead again this year. Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. Famously down to earth, for over twenty years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere. It is in her special Christmas concerts that all these elements combine to exquisite effect.
Renowned as one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and one of our most emotive original songwriters – melding old and new so you can barely see the join. 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.
After fifteen years of enchanting audiences up and down the land, Kate’s Christmas tour has for many, become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself! Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band – joined as ever by a sublime brass quintet – embody the sounds and joyous spirit of the best Christmases ever.
This unmissable evening of entertainment will see Kate showcasing songs from her forthcoming Christmas album of Yorkshire festive songs and carols together with old favourites from her previous three highly popular Christmas albums.
Hugely spirited but undoubtedly family affairs, Kate’s concerts celebrate what makes Christmas so special and so much fun as she and her fellow musicians perform fabulous songs brimful of the goodwill and spirituality of the season and in doing so put smiles on faces and joy in our hearts
