The Unthanks All-Dayer

15 October 2023

Start times:

12pm: The Big Sing in the Glanfa (free)

2pm: The Bairns performed by Rachel Unthank and the Winterset

4pm: Q+A in BBC Hoddinott Hall with The Unthanks and Emily Staveley-Taylor of The Staves (free)

One day. Two shows. Three records.

Celebrate the re-issue of The Unthanks' classic albums with a special all-day event, including a lunchtime Big Sing in our Glanfa where you're invited to join, followed by concerts, participatory events and a Q&A hosted by Emily Staveley-Taylor of The Staves.

Across two concerts, a one-time only reformed Rachel Unthank & The Winterset will perform Mercury-nominated album The Bairns in the afternoon, before The Unthanks perform their critically-acclaimed albums Heres The Tender Coming and Last in the evening.

These exclusive events celebrate the reissue of three albums which were originally licensed to EMI on a ten year deal that has now elapsed, giving The Unthanks chance to release all three on vinyl for the first time, as well as a 24 page CD book, both with forewords from notable fans and exclusive new content.

Mercury Music Prize nominated The Bairns was the only British folk album to feature in The Guardian and Uncut’s Albums Of The Decade. Here’s The Tender Coming was 2009 Mojo Folk Album of Year, while 2011's Last was described by Q Magazine as "their best album.. bewitching and hugely ambitious”, and by The Sunday Express as a “gorgeously unhurried, utterly mesmerising masterpiece.”

Tickets can be bought for either the afternoon or evening performance. Buy tickets to both to receive an all-day discount, plus you get all the other activities included for free!


New for this year, we're launching a limited number of Pay What You Can tickets where you can apply for up to two Llais events of your choice on a first come, first served basis. Find out more about Pay What You Can.
