About Kathryn Williams and Polly Paulusma

As label buddies on One Little Independent Records, Kathryn Williams and Polly Paulusma met on a song writing retreat. They have also written songs together and tutored song writing courses at Arvon Foundation.

Their friendship developed and strengthened, supporting each other over lockdown. Being fans of each other’s work, it seemed a foregone conclusion that they would get on the road at some point.

Finally after many years of talking about their Thelma and Louise tour dreams (hopefully without the killing or the cliff) they have pulled together a beautiful intimate month-long tour up and down the country, both playing headline solo sets and also coming together for a few songs together.

Lucky audiences will get two concerts for the price of one from two of the most respected British independent singer-songwriters this country has to offer.

Kathryn Williams is a Liverpool-born, Mercury Music Prize nominated singer-songwriter with 16 albums under her belt. Before her last release, Night Drives (which entered the official folk album charts straight to number 2), the label OLI celebrated her career thus far with a 20 CD two book box set anthology strewn with her art.

Polly Paulusma’s shed-recorded debut Scissors In My Pocket received international critical acclaim upon its 2004 release by One Little Independent. She toured the USA, supported Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Divine Comedy and Marianne Faithfull and played Glastonbury.
