nager Kate Rusby's myspace, where is it? (45) RE: Kate Rusby's myspace, where is it? 04 Feb 09

Ian, I agree with most of what you say above, not just about KR and "famous" people like her but even at a local level with folk festivals and clubs etc where the "in" people get all the spots, not on talent but because they know the right people. It's the old saying "not what you know but who you know". Sadly that's life!
Sandbell, I happen to like Kate's voice and choice of songs etc but I certainly don't "grovel" at anyone's feet, neither am I an "irate Rusby worshipper." Nor do I throw "slings and arrows" at people.
To say that we would not listen to your music because it has not been "hyped" by the media is so so wrong. I spend much of my listening time hearing people most have never read about, let alone been "hyped". And much of that music I thoroughly enjoy. I'd maybe like yours too.
