Karine Polwart draws from folk music’s long tradition while keeping pace with the ceaselessly changing times. Her talent for crafting unique, enduring melodies, her gift for saying just enough without overstating her case, the range and dynamism of her arrangements, all come together in songs of powerful contemporary relevance. She also has the purest and most approachable of singing voices, drawing the listener towards her in the same way one might lean towards a late night tale by the fireside.
“One of the finest singer-songwriters in Britain”– The Guardian
Having recieved glowing reviews for her new album Traces, Karine comes to The Met with her two regular touring collaborators, brother Steven Polwart (guitars and vocals) and Fair Islander Inge Thomson (accordion, percussion and vocals).
Karine has been nominated for three awards for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in January 2013.
