Kate Rusby Launches A New Christmas Album Ahead Of Her Scarborough Spa Concert
Kate Rusby, the festive folk queen of South Yorkshire, is set to release her third Christmas album this November, ahead of her live concert at Scarborough Spa on Thursday 3 December.
‘The Frost Is All Over’, which will be released via her Pure Records label on 27 November, embraces the South Yorkshire tradition that she first took part in as a child with her family. For over 200 years the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire folk have performed their own variation of familiar carols in the local pubs.
This 11-track album will feature songs ‘Winter Wonderland’, ‘Dilly Carol’, ‘Yorkshire Merry Christmas’ and many more traditional festive favourites.
Kate’s Christmas tour, which kicks off at Scarborough Spa’s Grand Hall, will feature songs from all three of her Christmas records along with selections from Kate’s 2014 album ‘Ghost’.
“Her show sparkles with magic and an achingly bittersweet sense of Christmasses past” Yorkshire Post
“ ….exquisite interpretations of traditional material from the pocket sized folk singer with the heartbreakingly tremulous voice and bawdy Yorkshire wit” Daily Telegraph
“Quite simply, it is one of many great songs performed so eloquently by Rusby and her musicians. It is utterly engaging and goose pimple moments are in abundance” Yorkshire Coast Gigs
Tickets for ‘Kate Rusby at Christmas’ are priced at £25 per adult, £22 per concession and £15 per child under the age of 16. Tickets are on sale now and are available from The Spa’s Box Office (01723) 821888 and via www.scarboroughspa.co.uk
