Karine Polwart

Please note this event has been rescheduled to Sunday 10 October 2021. It was originally advertised as taking place on Friday 16 October 2020.

Seven-time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner, Karine Polwart's talent for crafting unique, enduring melodies, her gift for saying just enough without overstating her case, and the range and dynamism of her arrangements; all come together in songs of powerful contemporary relevance.

Karine draws from folk music’s long tradition while keeping pace with the ceaselessly changing times. Having studied politics and philosophy at university and later worked in the area of women’s and children’s rights, Polwart has always wanted her music to perform some useful social function.

'For me, music is one of the most powerful ways of making sense of the world. It’s for celebrating, grieving, sharing, wondering. Nothing inspires me more than the realisation that any one of my songs means something to someone else.'
Karine Polwart

A songwriter, musician, theatre maker and author, she also performs traditional songs and writes for theatre, film, animation, and international thematic collaborative projects. Recent projects include her successful Scottish Songbook re-imaginings of classic Scottish pop, and The Lost Words: Spell Songs, a multi-artist response to environmental loss and climate breakdown.

'Poignant, unflinching and beautiful.'
The Telegraph
