Kate Rusby’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience and her special Christmas shows will be no exception.
Famously down to earth, for over twenty years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit have further endeared her to concert goers everywhere so the audience at her Parr Hall show on 16 December are in for a treat.
It is in her special Christmas concerts that all these elements combine to exquisite effect.
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 Christmas season.
In her performances Kate is embracing and sharing a South Yorkshire tradition of which she has been a part ever since she was a child.
For over 200 years, from late November to New Year’s Day, Sunday lunchtimes see the good folk of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire flock to their local public houses to sing their own unique variations of familiar carols which, as Kate says, “were kicked out of churches during the Victorian era for being too happy”.
