Thread Name: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!!
Subject: RE: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!!
Aye, I feared that Cuddles. Over the years of listening to our wonderful floor singers in clubs, I have always longed for that one individual voice to come along and every now and again one comes along. It must be said that some of them haven't had the songs or confidence or the other important things that have to go along with the good unique voice to make people sit up and listen for more than one shot.

The Sandys and Kates are few and far between but we can be thankful for having them. Of course Sandy was more than just a voice, she was a superb songwriter and anyone who either knew her or has at least read Clinton Heylin's 'No More Sad Refrains' will know what a huge personality she was too.
