Soulful Kate Rusby returning to Stafford for folk gig

Kate Rusby

One of the UK’s most celebrated folk singers, Kate Rusby, is set to return to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre this May for another incredible evening of live music.

Of all the stars in Folk Music’s wondrous firmament few shine as brightly as Yorkshire’s Kate Rusby. A career which spans over 25 years in music showcases her as one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and one of our most emotive original songwriters.

Forever proud to call herself a folk singer, Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. Rusby’s wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit and the intuitive support of the band ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.

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.

Audiences 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 songs from her latest studio album Life in a Paper Boat (Autumn 2016 release).

As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her select band. These virtuoso artists are sure to delight you with their exceptional talents.

Kate Rusby will be performing at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on Saturday 5th May 2018 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £25.50, with under 16s tickets priced at £18.50, and are available from the Box Office on 01785 619080 or via
