The Unthanks to play at Malvern Theatres
4:20pm Thursday 19th April 2012 in Music & Dance
FOLLOWING their successful collaboration with the massed ranks of national champions Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band, M e r c u r y - n o m i n a t e d British folk band The Unthanks come to Malvern Theatres with support from Jonny Kearney and Lucy Farrell. Known for their timeless, unsentimental and quietly subversive tales of loss, fear, booze, brawls, abuse and sorrow, siblings Rachel and Becky Unthank are forging links between folk worlds old, new and other.
The Unthanks occupy a unique place in music, influenced as much by the minimalist eccentricity of Steve Reich, Antony and The Johnsons, Robert Wyatt and Miles Davis, as they are by their native North East England.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see The Unthanks close-up and paired-down, with Jonny Kearney and Lucy Farrell, performing songs from their debut album, Kite, described by Lauren Laverne as “absolutely gorgeous”. The Unthanks are at Malvern Theatres on Saturday, April 28 at 7.30pm. To book call the box office on 01684 892277
