Kate Rusby

Folk singer/songwriter Kate Rusby has lived in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, since birth, and grew up in a musical family. Her parents had a ceilidh dance band and introduced her to British folk at an early age. Along with her sister, Emma, Rusby joined the band, singing backup and playing the fiddle. By the time she was 12, Rusby also sang lead and played guitar.

At 15, she debuted at the Holmfirth Festival, and was introduced to another young folksinger, Kathryn Roberts; after playing together live for a while, the duo recorded Kate Rusby & Kathryn Roberts, which won Folk Roots' 1995 Album of the Year award. Rusby also collaborates with the female folk ensemble the Poozies, appearing on their 1997 album Come Raise Your Head and 1998's Infinite Blue. On her own, Kate Rusby has released 1998's Hourglass, and 1999 saw the U.S. release of Kate Rusby & Kathryn Roberts as well as the solo Sleepless. Little Lights appeared in spring 2001. She released 10, a collection of re-recorded and new tunes, as well as a handful of live cuts in 2003, followed by the acclaimed Underneath the Stars in 2004. Girl Who Couldn't Fly arrived the next year and in 2007, Rusby wrote and produced her next solo album, Awkward Annie. While December 2008 brought the release of her first Christmas album, Sweet Bells, the following year Rusby gave birth to her first child, Daisy Della, and subsequently took a brief break from the music industry. However, she returned in November 2010 with Make the Light, an album that consisted entirely of Rusby’s own compositions. A year later she issued a second seasonal album, While Mortals Sleep, before celebrating two decades of making music with October 2012’s 20, a double album’s worth of collaborations with artists such as Paul Weller, Eddi Reader and Mary Chapin Carpenter. ~ Heather Phares

Old Man Time is really a beautiful song--hard to believe Rusby wrote it and that it's not 'folk' tradition. Well done, Kate

Does Sho Heen mean something? I tried doing a translation at Google but nothing came up....

Her versions of Bold Riley and Bloming Heather are simply sublime. If she'd been singing Bold Riley when the ship left port the vessel would've turned 'round on its own to hear her sing it again !

I've been listening to Kate Rusby for a few years now and every time she releases something, I find myself purchasing her work even before I know if it will be good or not. In fact her new album 20 is coming out Oct. 22 so look for it if you are a fan. Her voice is like an angel and her songs are filled with stories you want to hear. This is what a singer songwriter should be.

I have to agree, her quality out shines most .Definitely similar expressive to the late great Sandy Denny. I will add her to my favorites and buy some of her work. This is what radio is supposed to be. I really enjoy Pandora.

This is my first time in at least 3 years of having this station having heard this singer. She is such a wonderful singer. And the lyrics to The Unquiet Grave is so remarkable. I will look out for more of her.

Lovely, just sooooo lovely....

I sincerely wish she would appear here in the states. Unfortunatel y , the title of her album The Girl Who Couldn't Fly is about her own fear of flying, so I don't see her coming here any time soon. May just have to make a trip to England some time. Love her voice.
