More information about The Unthanks In Winter tickets

In Winter is an abstract new work that captures the warmth and nostalgia of the festive season,  the chill and darkness of the winter months, and the reflective ritualisms of the turn of the year;  the end and beginning of the circle of life. You will hear what a Tyneside band playing a German   Christmas song in the style of The Beach Boys sounds like! A Spanish carol performed by English  folkies through the filter of Tom Waits. A newly written tribute to the NHS. An abstract take on A  Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten. Traditional wassails and old stories coloured with folk  noir and traces of Vincent Guaraldi’s Merry Christmas Charlie Brown. In typical magpie style, The  Unthanks collect and reimagine, at once unique and familiar, inspired but natural and effortless. 

In Winter features a new sound palette for The Unthanks, incorporating vibraphone, clarinet and  saxophone into the core band that features vocal harmony, piano, violin, double bass, guitars and  percussion. 

The Unthanks tell stories that capture children. They make music cutting edge enough to be BBC 6Music regulars. They can equally be found on Radios 2, 3 and 4, reframing history and drawing together the worlds of folk, jazz, orchestral, electronic and rock music. The believability of their storytelling is admired by some of our best storytellers - Mackenzie Crook, Elvis Costello, Maxine Peake, Nick Hornby, Martin Freeman, Robert Wyatt, Charles Hazelwood, Ben Myers and David Mitchell, to name a few. 

At the nucleus of a constantly evolving unit is the traditional upbringing of Tyneside sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank and the arrangements and writing of Barnsley composer, pianist and producer, Adrian McNally. 

The Unthanks have been described as “a take on tradition that flips so effortlessly between jazz, classical, ambient and post-rock, it makes any attempt to put a label on them a waste of time”. 

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. 

“The Unthanks are capable of such beauty that sometimes I can hardly bear to listen to them.”  Martin Freeman  

“There are few times when you discover a band and they stalk immediately to the heart of  everything you love and hold dear.” Maxine Peake  

“It’s quite a rare thing now. They’ve really got everything you could want from music. And I’m very  fussy.” Robert Wyatt
