Karine Polwart




Released: 13th Aug 2012


beautiful, poignant, evocative 5th solo album from one of scotland's most celebrated & loved singer-songwriters.

supported by brother steven polwart (guitars & vocals) & fair islander inge thomson (accordion, percussion & vocals), polwart's own direct musical contribution to traces has expanded beyond her usual acoustic guitars to include indian harmonium, floor percussion, & even modest use of field recordings. polwart deftly brings a timeless emotion to distinctly modern themes from the history & symbolism of st. paul's cathedral via the occupy movement to the childhood mystique of the bp petrochemical plant at grangemouth.
