“One of the finest singer-songwriters in Britain”  The Guardian ****

With glowing reviews for the evocative lyricism and cinematic musical depth of her new album “Traces”, Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart tours the UK in 2013 with her two regular touring collaborators, Rachel Newton (harp, fiddles & vocals) and Fair Islander Inge Thomson (accordion, percussion and vocals).

Karine 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.

Nominated for 3 awards at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013 – Folk Singer of the Year, Best Album ‘Traces’ & Best Original Song

Nominated for 2013 Scottish Album of the Year for Traces

The song Cover Your Eyes will send shivers down your spine. A haunting response to Donald Trump’s golf course development in Aberdeenshire.
