Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby - opinions please?
From various interviews I've heard, it would appear that Kate and her family have managed to do very well without "the system". This is one of the reasons I admire her so much.
Ploughing your own furrow is rarely the easy option, but it does give you control (over quality as much as anything else) and can avoid the kinds of problems aired here recently about certain of the "mainstream" folk/acoustic record labels.
And I remember a classic response from her when asked in a radio interview about why they decided to do their own thing ... "We're from Yorkshire. We don't trust anybody"!
