Thread Name: Review: Kate Rusby - opinions please?
Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby - opinions please?
Kate is a charming young woman with a lifetime in and around folk music. We put her on stage as a fourteen year old with tremendous presence and a few nerves. She is from a musical family, plays fiddle guitar and keboard at a high level. We love her personality and music - she is unashamedly Yorkshire, and proud of her accent.
She has hardly been groomed by the Media and Record Companies - as far as I'm aware her father and other family members act as agent and record her themselves.
Her pedigree in Folk Music is impeccable, and doesn't warrant the pejorative quotation marks in the opening of this thread
