Two of today's most incisive, articulate and exquisitely expressive singer-songwriters
From the Financial Times to the Sun, reviews of Karine
Polwart’s fifth album Traces (2012) unanimously declared her one of today’s
most incisive, articulate and exquisitely expressive singer-songwriters.
Addressing subjects from Donald Trump to an elderly neighbour’s life-story,
Traces “plays like a book of short stories set to music, full of stunning
nuances and depths” (BBC).
After rapturous acclaim for her remarkable folk-opera
project Hadestown, and 2012’s stunning state-of-the-nation album Young Man in America, US singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell
returns to Celtic Connections performing material from her latest,
long-cherished project, a reinterpretation of classic Child Ballads with
Brooklyn-based collaborator Jefferson Hamer.
