One of England’s great voices in recent years’ folk music is coming back to Tønder Festival. Kate Rusby guested Tønder Festival in 2013, and Tønder Festival fans can anticipate this opportunity to enjoy this talented British singer and songwriter. Kate Rusby (born 1973) became well-known in the 90s as one of the leading lights in the new wave of British folk music and is today at the top of a distinguished solo career. It all began in the group Equation with singer Kathryn Roberts and the three Lakeman brothers, Seth, Sam and Sean. Rusby recorded an album with Kathryn Roberts in 1995, and in 1997 Kate Rusby’s debut solo album Hourglass came out, produced by John McCusker.

Solo album number two, Sleepless in 1999 saw Kate Rusby move up to the premier league: that was the year she was nominated for the respected Mercury Music Prize. She has subsequently won numerous awards, including several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Since 2008, Kate Rusby has also released a series of Christmas albums with her versons of traditional Christmas songs. These publications and the accompanying tours are popular in England. Her most recent Christmas release is Angels And Men from 2017. Her only Danish festival concert in 2019.
