This is a rare chance to enjoy Karine in a very intimate, conversational solo performance. Expect a clutch of new songs and wonder tales.

Karine Polwart is a multi-award-winning songwriter, folk singer, and storyteller. Her songs evoke a richness of place, hidden histories, scientific curiosity and folklore. Trees and rocks speak. Birds flit in and out of vision. And the stars know everything. She conjures the beauty and magic, the sorrow and complexity of the world out of the corner of her eye, with lyricism and tenderness
