Karine Polwart Trio - Backstage Pass (Video Session)

Karine Polwart Trio – Backstage Pass (Video Sessions)

by on 28 April, 2012

in Music News

Watch these two recently recorded videos of the Karine Polwart Trio (Karine Polwart / Steven Polwart / Inge Thomson) featuring pre-show backstage performances. The first is ‘Handbasket’, it was recorded at ‘The Junction 2′, Cambridge this month. The track didn’t make it onto her forthcoming album ‘Traces’ (due out 13th August) but it’s still one they like to perform:

The second track was recorded at the Perth Concert Hall and should need no introduction to Karine Polwart fans. ‘The Sun’s Comin’ Over The Hill’ is what Karine calls her good luck song:

This is my “good luck” song, the one that my entire sustainability as a musician sort of hangs on (it won “Best Original Song” at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2005 – an event which opened up a massive new listening audience for me and without that opportunity I’d probably be doing something else instead by now). Songs evolve as musicians evolve. And if they don’t they get stale. I fell out of love with this song for several years. I’d forgotten how to connect with it. And if you don’t connect as a singer then you’re ruined. We changed the key and the feel and it’s alive again for me! Hurray!
