Thread Name: Kate Rusby (duet with POP star Ronan Keating)
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby (duet with POP star Ronan Keating)
I was so rivetted by watching the video that I dont think that I noticed the actual song at all. Of course, it may be that time has mercifully erased it from my memory banks,
I totally support Kate Rusby's efforts in this, but I'm not sure how the record is supposed to advance the cause of folk, as some people are suggesting.. I can see how famous mainstream peformers singing folksongs might have this effect, but surely this is the opposite: obscure folk performer sings pop song. I dont see that that will cause any teenyboppers to rush out and start buying up the Topic back catalogue.
