Subject: RE: Kate Rusby on telly on Friday.
Well, after all the discussion about Kate last week, I watched the show,and I agree the band was first class.
Kates voice and delivery were again very poor. Classics like "Withered and died" should have been "show stoppers",but Kate managed to make every song sound the same. What would June have done with that band and set of songs?.
The other extraviganza from Ulster worried me even more,poor Caras' wee voice was completely swamped,and although Brian Kennedy has a beautiful voice,whats it all got to do with folk music?
I fear we're on a downward spiral into "stardom",soon "Folk music" will be only a memory...Ake
