Giant Folk Eyeball (inactive) Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!! (195* d) RE: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!! 02 Feb 08

Really like the VGPS - but with 'source material' like that you'd have to be rubbish to get it wrong. Look forward to hearing her tackling Sandy Denny.

Kate Rusby is someone who usually gets a real pasting on folk forums. Don't know why - she's not exactly the Great Satan. Although she's not usually entirely to my taste, its nice to see her getting some positive comments here. She's someone quite a few of my non-folky friends 1) have heard of 2) like and 3) own records by. Not sure what this means, but I guess she must be doing something right. More power to her elbow, then.

Sings in a northern accent too, which gets a thumbs up from me. I like the Arctic Monkeys for the same reason. Goes against the tendency for singers who don't want to sound american to end up sounding like southerners. Actual southerners, of course, are allowed to sound like southerners... enough.
