GUEST,Strollin' Johnny Kate Rusby Overkill (135* d) RE: Kate Rusby Overkill 19 Feb 04

Countess Richard - I distinctly remember (and I'm well old enough to!) that June received regular coverage in the 'Melody-Maker' during the Folk revival of the late 60s/early-to-mid '70s. It was through that very organ that I first heard of her and Maddy, (and lots of others -Martyn, Renbourn, Carthy, Steeleye, Fairport etc. etc. ad infinitum), and it's from there that my love of Folk was born. The level of exposure may not have been quite up to that currently being given to Kate - the range of media outlets was, of course, far more restricted in those days, no BSkyB, far fewer terrestrial channels etc. - but for that time she was given a fair amount of coverage, especially by the music press (the 'Pop' music press to boot!). Perhaps the notion that she was only a 'Cult' figure was spawned by those who hate 'Success' and who want to jealously keep an artiste almost as a private and personal 'Possession'?
