Kate Rusby

Kate Rusby is often hailed as the ‘first lady of folk’. Announcing herself to the music press in 1999 with a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize, she has forged an impressive 20-year career, breaking records and headlining everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall to Cambridge Folk Festival.

A transcendent performer she appears with her virtuoso band, hand-picked from the UK’s finest musicians. Don’t miss this remarkable talent.

Everybody loves and respects Kate Rusby, not just for her lovely voice, but for the way that she has moved folk forward while remaining true to tradition…The Sunday Times

O’Hooley & Tidow

Popular Yorkshire duo O’Hooley & Tidow are a folk force to be reckoned with. Characterised by strong harmonies and humorous, heart-touching tales of the exceptional and everyday, the duo are often cited as ‘England’s answer to the McGarrigles’ (The Guardian) and are widely recognised as ‘one of British folk music’s mightiest combinations’ (Mojo). Their song ‘Gentleman Jack’ features as the closing theme to Sally Wainwright’s BBC/HBO drama series Gentleman Jack.

“Defiant, robust, northern, poetical, political folk music for the times we live in,” The Independent
