Overview

English folk phenomenon Kate Rusby explores small moments -- the lingering flight of "The Wild Goose," the predicament of "The Cobbler's Daughter," the musing of "The Sleepless Sailor." She does this with a fine ear and voice for detail, treating her songs -- from the traditional "Goose" to the original "Sailor" with the spare yet passionate delivery they merit. She also offers a definitively different take on Iris DeMent's saga of the death of a small southwestern hamlet, "Our Town." Rusby is from Yorkshire in the UK, and her distinctive accent lends authenticity and personality to the tales she shares. The twentysomething Rusby's unlikely combination of simplicity and sophistication as well as her understanding of musical tradition is opening doors for her in other parts of the world as well.

I am not usually a fan of folk music, but I love Kate Rusby. Her music is original, often based off of traditional irish music. This cd is one of my favorites!
