"Intimate, epic, overflowing with feeling and musical intelligence." The Independent.
The Tyneside-born girl group of the folk world, The Unthanks perform their music, considered transcendent, yet unsentimental. An evening filled with old, new and imaginatively borrowed stories of booze, brawls, joy and loss.
The Unthanks have great prominence in British folk music and are admired by Radiohead, Robert Wyatt and Portishead.
After their sold out gig at the beginning of the year, they return to Leeds presenting their extended line-up and songs from their yet-to-be released album. -- www.operanorth.co.uk
