Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly
Let me tell you this matey. In the seventies there were some very good performers, but therewas an awful lot of dross. The folk revival was still fairly new, lots of clubs and not enough acts to fill them. We can all recall the big names, Nic Jones, Pete Bellamy, Dick Gaugan, Tony Rose etc, but for every one you can remember there are dozens that did not make it. Kate would have been there with the top names - no doubt, no doubt at all.
I find it sickening that great 'new' talent like this has to put up with ill informed crap by people who obviously have no idea about what they are talking.
