20/4/14 – Kate Rusby – Cruel – 2003

Kate Rusby 2012

 

Underneath The Stars was Kate Rusby’s sixth album released in 2003. Cruel features on the album and is a traditional song from Lancashire. I’m not sure exactly when this performance is from but it’s somewhere between 2003 and 2008. Rusby sings many traditional songs, songs that are steeped in history, the album also features The Blind Harper, her favourite traditional song. Follow the link below to find out more about it:
