Kate Rusby: 20
2013 release from the British Folk artist. A remarkable interpretive singer, Kate's soulful vocals resonate with the wistful beauty of an earthbound angel. Marking 20 years of making music, Kate revisits her illustrious past on the appropriately titled 20, a beautiful collection of nineteen newly recorded versions of her favorite songs. 'Sun Grazers' a self-penned, soulful duet with Paul Weller, previously unrecorded makes up the 20. Reminding us how influential Rusby has been in persuading a new audience to seriously engage with Folk music, whilst also reflecting her stature within the wider musical community, Weller is just one of an array of luminaries joining in the celebrations. Thus, while Rusby's voice remains absolutely centre stage, 20 is also graced by contributions from Richard Thompson, Eddi Reader, Paul Brady, Dick Gaughan, dobro king Jerry Douglas, Radiohead drummer Phil Selway, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bluegrass aces Chris Thile and Sarah Jarosz and, most touchingly, Kate's beloved Nic Jones (Kate's all time musical hero) on 'The Lark.'
