During exchanges with Kate Rusby about an article I was writing for her website, I mentioned that I was heading for Cropredy and the annual Fairport Convention reunion. "Have a ball," was Kate's advice.
But I loved her reaction when I reported my feelings of utter joy at the reproduction of the amazing album Liege and Lief.
"ps....," I wrote, "absolutely adored Liege and Lief concert. Chris While was magnificent."
Kate's response: "AW that’s brilliant, she was so nervous. I knew she’d do good tho cos she’s just fab."
No need to tidy up the e-mailSpeak. The message was clear and understood.
