Described by The Guardian as ‘Haunting, original and magnificent’, Mercury-nominated Tyneside band The Unthanks have a peerless approach to folk music. Their paradoxical journey of staunch traditionalism and sonic adventure continues with a collaboration for BRASS 2011 with Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band; the National Champions of Great Britain, regarded by many as the best and most consistent public subscription band in the world. With a focus on the folk songbook of the coal-mining industry, The Unthanks will sing material from their past and current repertoire, with arrangements re-imagined for the massed ranks of ‘Briggus’, as well as material especially written and arranged for this project. A magical night of blissful music.

This concert will begin at 7.30pm.
