Known for their genre blurring creativity, The Unthanks premiere their dream-like winter fantasia.
Embracing both the dark and the light in the most ritualistic of seasons, their show is a hymnal to our shared winter experience. Echoes of winter tunes known throughout the western world, mix with the traditional and the newly written.
Their abstract new work captures the magic and wonder of the turn of the year – the end and beginning of the circle of life.
Using the traditional music of the North East of England as a starting point, the influence of Miles Davis, Steve Reich, Sufjan Stevens, Robert Wyatt, Antony & The Johnsons, King Crimson and Tom Waits makes The Unthanks a unique band, earning them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and international acclaim along the way.
