The Unthanks in Winter

Global/Folk Sun 22 Dec 2024, 7:30pm The Haymarket



£34 (includes £4 booking fee)

When December draws near, The Unthanks will release and tour In Winter – a double-album, dream-like winter fantasia, embracing both the dark and the light in the most ritualistic of seasons.

Using the traditional music of the North East of England as a starting point, the influence of Miles Davis, Steve Reich, Sufjan Stevens, Robert Wyatt, Antony & The Johnsons, King Crimson, and Tom Waits makes The Unthanks a distinctive band, earning them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and international praise along the way.

Elvis Costello
The Unthanks are capable of such beauty that sometimes I can hardly bear to listen to them
Martin Freeman
