About Kate Rusby: Est 1973

Forever proud to call herself a folk singer, Kate Rusby’s vocals never fail to connect the heart of a song to that of her audience.

Named as one of the Top Ten Folk Voices of the Century, a Mercury Prize Winner, 6-times BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winner and a warm, Yorkshire sense of humour to boot, Rusby has achieved an unprecedented cross-over appeal. Despite stepping into a more contemporary production on her last few albums, she has stayed true to her roots. Her cover of Manic Monday (Hand Me Down 2020) featured on the BBC Radio 2 playlist.

The guests on the 2022 album 30 is testament to Rusby’s wide appeal and include the likes of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, KT Tunstall, and Beth Nielson Chapman. Celebrating over 30 years of touring and 22 albums including her latest Christmas album, Light Years, released in December 2023, Rusby and her band of merry and very talented men will be visiting The Playhouse in her 50th birthday year with songs old and new.
