Kate Rusby is coming to Canada

Kate Rusby, perhaps the finest folksinger to emerge in England in the 1990s, rarely performs in North America but will be doing a limited number of Canadian concert dates this month including shows in Montreal (Thursday, March 11 at Cabaret Just pour rire as part of the Wintergreen Concert Series) and Toronto (Sunday-Monday, March 14-15 at Hugh’s Room).

I love Kate's records -- the ones she made as a member of the Poozies -- and her many solo albums. She is a beautiful singer who understands traditional folk music and is also a fine songwriter whose work reflects that understanding of traditional music. I wish I could be there but, unfortunately, I won’t be in Montreal next Thursday and can’t make it to Toronto or any of the other places she’s playing on this brief tour. If you can make it, don’t miss her.
