Kate Rusby at Christmas

Join Kate Rusby when she returns to Liverpool Philharmonic for her hugely popular Christmas tour.

Kate’s beautiful, expressive vocals never fail to connect the emotional heart of a song to that of her audience. Famously down to earth, for over twenty years Kate’s engaging personality and sharp Yorkshire wit have endeared her to concert goers everywhere. In her special Christmas concerts, all these elements combine to exquisite effect.

After fifteen years of enchanting audiences, Kate’s Christmas tour has for many, become as much a part of the festivities as Christmas pudding itself! Warm and inviting, spicy and sparkly she and her marvellous band – joined by a sublime brass quintet – embody the sounds and spirit of the best Christmas ever, putting smiles on faces and joy in our hearts.

With a career spanning  25 years in music, Kate Rusby is one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and one of the most emotive original songwriters - melding old and new so you can barely see the join. She’s a Mercury-Prize nominee, and has won ‘Folk Singer of the Year’, ‘Best Live Act’, ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Original Song’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Kate has released three albums of Yorkshire festive songs and carols and this year’s Christmas tour will feature tracks from all four festive collections.

This unmissable evening will celebrate what makes Christmas so special and fun as Kate and her fellow musicians perform fabulous songs brimful of the goodwill and spirituality of the season and in doing so put smiles on faces and joy in our hearts.
