Radio 2 Folk Awards winner in Norwich

BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner Karine Polwart brings her UK tour to Norwich Arts Centre on Tuesday (8pm) with songs from her new album This Earthly Spell which is released on Monday.
It's three years since Polwart scooped a trio of BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including Best Album for her debut Faultlines and Best Original Song, an accolade she won for a second time in 2007.
In the meantime, she's released two further solo albums, Scribbled in Chalk and Fairest Floo'er, and collaborated with the likes of Roddy Woomble and cult Glasgow indie outfit Future Pilot AKA.
This Earthly Spell reinforces Polwart's reputation as a humane and perceptive songwriter who draws on indie and roots influences as much as folk traditions.
Her poignant and powerful songwriting is complemented by warm and witty live performances.
