The Unthanks - Live 2022
The Sorrows Away Tour
We are very excited to announce that The Unthanks will be performing at New Mills Art Theatre on Friday 20th May 2022!
The Unthanks return to live touring after two years off the road, with the rich and colourful sound of their eleven-piece ensemble, showcasing forthcoming new album, Sorrows Away, alongside favourites such as Magpie, The King Of Rome and Mount The Air.
Descriptions of The Unthanks range variously from “music that asks you to consider everything you know and un-think it”, to “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 can be heard in the band’s 14 records to date, earning them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and international acclaim along the way.
Tickets go on sale online FRIDAY 5th November at 10am at www.newmillsfestival.com/the-unthanks. You can also purchase them in New Mills every Saturday between the 5th November and 18th December from the Festival Box Office which will be in Archie’s New Mills on Market Street between 9.30am and 10.30am.
