Thread Name: Kate Rusby on telly on Friday.
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby on telly on Friday.
I am tempted to agree: where's the fire in Kate Rusby? Very nice, wholly unexceptionable. Beside Steeleye or Fairport, the vocals do not burn. But she's a better guitarist than I thought (was she playing a Fylde?) and thank god there was no piano.
More of an Irish-American tinge to the presentation than I wholly like on largely mainland UK material.
Incidentally "plangent" has two meanings: one apt, one not.
