The Unthanks

Eccentric Geordie folk sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank.


The Unthanks return to live touring after two years off the road, showcasing forthcoming new album, Sorrows Away, their first non-project based record since 2015 BBC Folk Album Of The Year, Mount The Air.

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 can be heard in the band’s 14 records to date, earning them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and international acclaim along the way. The Unthanks will play songs from across this repertoire, in addition to tracks from new album, Sorrows Away, with a 5-piece line-up.
