Kate Rusby

Festive folk comes to the Corn Exchange

Kate Rusby has been at the top of the folk scene for a long time. She has been performing for 25 years, and for the last 15 of those, the former folk singer of the year and Mercury Prize-nominee has toured a Christmas show enchanting audiences throughout the country.

It comes to the Corn Exchange on 6 December and Kate will embrace a South Yorkshire tradition. For more than 200 years on Sunday lunchtimes people would go to their local pub to sing their own unique variations of familiar carols, that, as Kate says, ‘were kicked out of churches during the Victorian era for being too happy!’

Her festive tour features tracks from all four of her Christmas albums. Tickets are £27.50
