The Unthanks


We're determined to see more live music this year. The plan was a gig a month; we failed to see anyone in February, but maybe it'll average out come December.

Tonight was The Unthanks, supported by The Young-Uns at The Roundhouse in Camden. All three have been on my to-do list for a while; the headline act since seeing their set at Greenbelt a couple of years ago, the support since missing them at Solas (I think they had to pull out at the last minute) and the venue since being aware of it when a student in London before its renaissance.


None disappointed. In fact, the combination was perfect. Folk songs from the north in the engine shed that still has the ghosts of the steam locomotives that used to haul trains there from the south.

Stirring, inspiring and rallying.
