She will be performing classic songs from her back catalogue as well as new material.

Venue spokesman Thomas Waldron said: “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.”

Her audience is sure to be entertained by Kate’s choice of much-loved classics from her back catalogue together with a selection of fresh new songs from her latest albums Ghost and The Frost is all Over.

As ever, she will be joined on stage by the cream of British folk musicians who form her band.

Her virtuoso artists include: Damien O’Kane – banjo and tenor guitar, Duncan Lyall – double bass, Nick Cooke – diatonic accordion, and Steve Byrnes – Bouzouki. They are all exceptional talents.

Mr Waldron added: “The crossover appeal Kate enjoys is unprecedented for a folk singer and has been achieved without resort to compromise. 

“Her wondrous singing and hugely engaging Yorkshire wit, together with the intuitive support of the band, ensure that audiences will be treated to a truly remarkable and unforgettable concert experience.”

Kate Rusby will be performing at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on Wednesday at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £20.50, with a concession price of £15.50 for under-16s, and can be booked by calling the box office on 01785 619080 or by visiting
