'Fraid I have to agree with Mr Tash on the sameness of her material. She HAS done good, she's got traditional music onto a wider stage, so more power to her... suppose it comes down to the fact that English traditional music just isn't as good as Irish or Scottish. Perhaps it's English folk which is samey, not just Kate Rusby.
Controversial? Moi?
No, I really do believe it. The best toons & songs come from our Celtic brethren.
And don't ANYBODY tell me how good the Watersons are. I hear better singers and musicians than them (Martin Carthy partially excepted) at damn near every session I go to.
Over to you lot...
