Karine Polwart

Dates & times

Karine Polwart combines the economy and universality of the folk storytelling tradition with a probing intellect and compassionate lyricism. Twice winner of "Best Original Song" at the BBC Folk Awards, she continues to wonder at the homes her many poignant songs find for themselves. Whether it's the dilemmas of modern parenthood, the unsettling kindness of lies, or the resilience of hope, she admits most of her songs are an attempt to make sense of the fact that "there are people in this world who don't think like you do". She's a writer able to combine ancient traditions with sharp contemporary observations and an independent sensibility.
