Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly
It's her nephew on "The big ship sails on the Ally-Ally-O" - the bigger one of the two cute boys who do the introduction on "Live at Leeds".
The same problem for me with "Elfin Knight", you just want to hear one of these otherworld-love-and-murder stories :))
Well, Arbuthnot, I earn my money playing folk music since 10 years now, I never had what you call a proper job -
and I still would prefer not to play after a KR show.
Even if for a musician's ear some things are quite simple and redundant, the audience responds to her personality as much as to the music... Not that any of us will be asked to do this anyway :) You have to be Altan, they did it I think... And I'm not worried about their success because it is very different, all the rousing jigs & reels.
