....and of course, Kate Rusby on much more.
I have been promising it for long enough. Tomorrow, the first part of my recent* interview with the Barnsley songbird will be posted here.
Her thoughts on those other artists are just part of a fascinating talk, which began on the telephone and continued by e-mail between South Yorkshire and the south of France (well, we felt one of us ought to be down here).
Kate tells me about her first shot at producing an album - the very impressive new one, Awkward Annie, and about most of the things she's been getting up to. There's also an entertaining quickfire Q&A. In what order the interview will appear here remains to be decided, and I have also not yet worked out how many instalments it will require.
What I have pretty much resolved to do is let the story be told in Kate's own words. So there will be a minimum of editing of the questions and answers. Please pop back here tomorrow from early afternoon, maybe even sooner; you will be rewarded with Kate Rusby in Conversation.
* Recent began life as revent, and would have remained revent had Kate's eagle-eyed brother Joe not spotted it.......bring back proof readers
