It's hard to imagine a British folk outfit with fans like Radiohead, Portishead, Robert Wyatt, Ben Folds, Ewan McGregor and Nick Hornby, but The Unthanks occupy a unique place in music. Influenced as much by the minimalist eccentricity of Steve Reich, Antony & The Johnsons, Robert Wyatt and Miles Davis, as they are by the traditional music of the North East of England where sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank grew up, back home The Unthanks have established themselves as the most innovative and critically acclaimed folk band in modern history. Formerly known as Rachel Unthank & The Winterset, their second album The Bairns (2007), nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, was recently the only British folk album to appear in The Best Albums of the Decade in both Uncut magazine and The Observer (The Guardian on Sunday).
