The Unthanks

Plough Arts Centre, Torrington

Friday, April 27, 8pm

MERCURY nominated folkies, The Unthanks, are said to have fans as diverse as Radiohead, Portishead, Elvis Costello, Ewan McGregor and Nick Hornby.

The Northumbrian sisters, Rachel and Becky Unthank are known for their tales of loss, fear, booze, sorrow and siblings.

Formerly known as Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, their second album The Bairns (2007) was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and appeared in The Best Albums of the Decade in both Uncut and The Guardian.

Here's The Tender Coming (2009) was both BBC and Mojo Magazine Folk Album of the Year and featured in almost every UK music mag and broadsheet Albums of the Year poll.

For folk fans this will be a great opportunity to see this acclaimed duo in the intimate venue of The Plough. Tickets: £20 (full), £17 (concession), £14 (supporters). Box office: 01805 624624.
