Wistful love songs by young chanteuse,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Girl Who Couldn't Fly (Audio CD)
As many of the other reviewers have stated Kate Rusby has a beautiful plaintiff voice and this can be both a blessing and a hindrance as she will never have the vocal range and power of say June Tabor however when she sticks to what she is good at as in this album she is a fine singer songwriter and arranger of traditional words and music. This is a very good album and the fact that most of the songs are originals is a pleasant surprise as too many folk singers still labour under the impression that folkies like only proper folk tunes as collected by Percy Grainger.
