Leamington Editorial 11th Apr, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

KATE Rusby takes to the stage of Leamington’s Spa Centre this spring.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter and her band will be playing on Sunday May 15, performing songs from her back catalogue stretching back over two decades, together with tracks from her most recent album Ghost.

The Yorkshire-born songstress was born into a family of musicians in Barnsley in 1973, and after learning to play the guitar, the fiddle, and the piano, as well as to sing, she played many local folk festivals as a child and teenager, before joining the all-female Celtic folk band The Poozies.

Her 1995 breakthrough album – a collaboration with her friend and fellow Barnsley folk singer Kathryn Roberts – was simply titled Kate Rusby & Kathryn Roberts.

In 1997, with the help of her family, she recorded and released her first solo album, Hourglass. Since then she has gone on to receive acclaim both home and abroad.

Among of string of best-selling albums are two collections of Christmas songs – Sweet Bells and While Mortals Sleep – and her latest studio album Ghost was released in 2014.
