Win a pair of tickets to watch Folk Performer Kate Rusby at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre


If you love Folk Music and are a fan of Kate Rusby then do read on to find out how you can win yourself a pair of tickets worth £51 to watch her perform at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford, Staffordshire.  But on the other hand, if you are still not sure of who Kate Rusby is then let us tell you a little bit about her.  She has had a career in the folk music for over 25 years and she has been showcases as one of the finest interpreters of traditional folk songs and one of the most emotive original songwriters.

It has been said that Kate has a beautiful, expressive voice which never fails 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).

During the show, 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.  If you would like to find out more about her music or her spring tour do head to her youtube channel.

    Kate Rusby has a lovely harmonious style which tells a story or has a meaning behind it. Yet at the same time it’s playful. Songs such as ‘Only desire what you have’ to ‘Big brave Bill’. I saw her perform at a gig in Malvern and Kate and the band’s performance was mesmerising. Would love to see to see them perform again.
