Rufus and Martha Wainwright have announced that they will play three special Christmas shows in December.

The shows mark the tenth anniversary of the Wainwrights’ last ‘A Not So Silent Night’ event in London, which was also the last ever live performance by their mother Kate McGarrigle. All proceeds from the concerts will go towards the Kate McGarrigle Fund supporting sarcoma research, and a music therapy programme for cancer patients to be launched by Martha Wainwright in conjunction with Stand Up To Cancer Canada.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday (July 26) although you can sign up for pre-sales by visiting the official event sites for London’s Southbank and Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

The September 2019 issue of Uncut is on sale from July 18, and available to order online now – with The Who on the cover. Inside, you’ll find Blue Note, Dr John, Quentin Tarantino, Joan Shelley, Ty Segall, Buzzcocks, Ride, Lucinda Williams, Lloyd Cole and more. Our 15-track CD also showcases the best of the month’s new music, including Modern Nature, Sleater-Kinney, Ezra Furman and more.
