"Kate Rusby in Concert [BBC 4 11PM]
The reigning diva ofnew wave folk makes the shirt hop from Barnsley to Leeds,where she and her all male band-mandolin,giutar, accordion,double bass, whistle or flute-play at the City varieties Hall.
Deftly layered arrangements of traditional songs, mixing english and celtic folk styles complement Rusbys plangent vocals as they perform tracks from all three of her albums, the mood ranges from the broad humour of A Yorkshire Couple to the poingancy of the self penned Who will Sing Me Lulabies? and her cover of Richard Thompsons Withered and Ded.
