Kathryn Williams

 Saturday 19 October, 8pm 


HOME, Theatre 2

£20 (+ booking fee)

With Kitty Macfarlane

It's hard to believe that Liverpool-born singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams already has eleven full-length albums under her own name (and even more counting her various side-projects).


In celebration of this June's release of a boxset treasury of her albums and previously unreleased material - Anthology - Kathryn appears at Manchester Folk Festival, bringing together many of her best loved songs from across a remarkable career to date. 

Kathryn Williams' best-known work is characterised by rich and honest songwriting. Inspired by the greats - from Nick Drake to Joni Mitchell and beyond - she has continually evolved as an artist because she’s always looked beyond genre boundaries.  


Silky, whimsical vocals and that eloquent way with words are a constant, but project by project her work develops and grows, and spans everything from indie-folk-pop to dusty Americana and hushed jazz re-workings. 


This gig will showcase her adventurous songwriting and uncategorisable sound, right from her 1999 début 'Dog Leap Stairs' via her Mercury Prize-nominated ‘Little Black Numbers’, to her Sylvia Plath tribute project 'Hypoxia',  described by Clash Magazine as a “spellbinding work of art”. 


Recommended for age 9+
