Karine Polwart is a multi-award winning Scottish songwriter, folk singer, and storyteller. Her songs evoke a richness of place, hidden histories, scientific curiosity and folklore. Trees and rocks speak. Birds flit in and out of vision. And the stars know everything. She conjures the beauty and magic, the sorrow and complexity of the world out of the corner of her eye, with lyricism and tenderness

Karine’s many collaborative projects include – Still As Your Sleeping, a duo with pianist Dave Milligan; a longstanding trio with brother Steven Polwart and multi-instrumentalist Inge Thomson; her Scottish Songbook re-imaginings of classic Scottish pop; Spell Songs, a multi-artist response to environmental loss; and Wind Resistance, her peatbog-inspired theatre show for The Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh.

This is a rare chance to enjoy Karine in intimate, conversational solo performance. Expect a clutch of new songs and wonder tales, and an evening suffused with light.

One of the finest singer-songwriters in Britain ★★★★★ The Guardian

Running time: 2h

Please note under 16s should be accompanied by an adult over 18.
