Karine Polwart

Multi-award winning songwriter and musician, theatre maker and published writer Karine Polwart – six-time winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, including 2018 Folk Singer of The Year – will release new album, Laws of Motion, in October 2018 via Hudson Records.

Polwart’s seventh release, Laws of Motion is the follow-up to 2017’s much-praised A Pocket of Wind Resistance, which earned Karine & co-writer Pippa Murphy a New Music Scotland Award for its innovative blend of folk music, spoken word & sound design, alongside a nomination for the Radio 2 Folk Album of The Year.

The new album – recorded alongside long-term collaborators Inge Thomson (accordion) and brother Steven Polwart (guitars) – will arrive amidst a 13 date UK tour, including London’s Cadogan Hall. Laws of Motion is the latest in an evolving series of collaborative projects across which Polwart has combined music & storytelling with politics & environmental-societal issues.
