All you KR fans may not be familiar with the version of High Germany she recorded some 10 years ago with Steve Knightly, Phil Beer and Andy Cutting. It's on the Show of Hands album Dark Fields, but its also on Youtube, used in a somewhat different context.

I love the contrast between the male and female voices here and the way they intertwine in the middle of the song. Some beautiful playing as well.

I think she had one on her piano because she doesn't need a tall stand and my understanding is that the solid fan base is just too large for the venue. I think her brother probably doubled as the white-fan man.

When I saw her in Oxford at what was until recently the Zodiac but now re-named Carling Academy, must be 10 years ago, she was performing by herself, although she had her brother doing the sound. She used a fan that night and very effective it was too.

Yes Sal...a lot of us men do like Kate Rusby......for whatever our reasons......made mine clear early on the thread. We Lincolnshire 'Backwoodsmen' have been accused of being perverted because we admit to not just liking the voices of some women who sing but find them attractive too.
At 60, I am glad I still find women attractive.......

Loved Kate since the KR + KR days. Easily the best she's done along with Poozies stuff. One thing that does annoy me though. Having seen Kate live many times, I'm bored rigid with the silly little professional Yorkshire lass routine. I feel like throwing up whenever I hear it. Treat us like adults Kate, most of us are!

I've got Hourglass, Underneath the Stars, and Little Lights and like them all but tend to listen to UtS the most. I think they're all kind of similar in a way (and that's ain't a bad thing when it's all so damn good) but all have very interesting arrangements. Favorite songs seem to be Matt Hyland, The Blind Harper and The Drowned Lovers. T
Oh, and her version of VGPS is absolutely charming.

I like what she does as well as liking what many other performers do.

I couldn't give a toss, if nobody else likes what I like. My wife and daughters don't like what I like. That doesn't stop me listening or going to see who I like.

I'm with Ed. I started off an admirer, thought Hourglass was quite a good album. However, I became dis-illusioned with the second album and further disappointed after seeing her at a lacklustre gig with JM and AC - now I know you can't base an opinion on one gig, but I had seen her before. For me, and I stress for me, the sound and approach is two-dimensional in both the arrangments/material and the singing. On the same score I don't expect anyone to share my tastes.

Kate has done well and she has given much pleasure to many people, that's a good thing, isn't it?

Hey, a civilized Kate Rusby thread! Woohoo! O frabjous day! :D

On the subject of her upbeat tunes, it's true she tends to stick with slower stuff, but I definitely think she's done some nifty quicker songs. In particular, "The Blind Harper" from Underneath the Stars, and "Hunting the Hare" from the Rusby/Roberts album are two uptempo favorites. And I do agree that sometimes the songs fall into a certain sameyness (as we've noted before) but every album always has at least a gem or two, no matter what. Her duet with Tim O'Brien on "Sleepless" still makes chills run up and down my spine, and the duet with Chris Thile on Awkward Annie is just delicious...their voices together are wonderful. IMHO of course.

"There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good she was very, very good...and when she was bad, she was still pretty damned good!" ;)

Anyway, I definitely want to join. What's the secret handshake?

Underneath the Stars is a great album as well. It has some of my personal favorites on it. Isn't it great that Ian Carr has been with her for her whole career? He is so cute on the "Live at Leeds" DVD.

You don't need electric guitar, bass or drums to do something radical or different, in fact you could use those instruments and still come up with something that has the same feel. It is approach, interpretation, mood, dynamics, tempo that makes the difference. Kate managed that with "Stretched out on your grave", an extraordinary song in my opinion.
