Subject: RE: Kate Rusby
Err could I mention Richard Thompson at this point. The man has great respect throughout much of the modern music industry but still manages to retain his folkie roots.
Good luck to her I say & yes why not take folk into main stream. There are still many people around of a certain age that look back fondly on the music of Steelye Span etc., but wouldn't ever call themselves folkies.
Good folk music does not have to be contained in local folk clubs. The more folkie type music that gets out the better I say, educate the masses.
