ZAZA MUSIC PRESENTS: KARINE POLWART
Karine Polwart is a multi-award-winning songwriter and musician, a theatre maker, storyteller, spoken-word performer, essayist and published writer.
Five-times winner at The BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including twice for Best Original Song, her fifth solo album Traces was shortlisted for both the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award and BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Album of the Year and was chosen as best international folk-roots release by the Guardian. Her first solo album Faultlines won Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards back in 2005, following six years of touring as a traditional Scots singer with Malinky and Battlefield Band.
Karine will be playing with long-term collaborators brother Steven Polwart (guitars) and Inge Thomson (accordion, percussion) – and releasing new studio album Laws of Motion this year.
