Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

KATE RUSBY

Awkward Annie

2008-05-09

Take Rusby performing lovely ballads, both original and traditional, add lush strings, brass, and a lively banjo - spice with guests like Chris Thile, Kris Drever, John Doyle and you have the recipe for a Celtic delight. Despite a very tough year (in the liner notes she said she gave up making this cd more than once) she has managed give us songs that rise above. I found "Awkward Annie," "Bitter Boy," "Planets," and "Daughter of Heaven," enchanting. Ms. Rusby has won a bunch of awards in the past 10 years and this cd shows you why. Anne Lamont
