I have decided to wait and do the birthday shopping excursion later on today.
I have also decided that I am going to start posting some of my favorite artists and songs from time to time, an inspiration that came from this website that may or may not be the work of someone who is related to me (there, all identities preserved).
So first on the list, my favorite english folk singer, Kate Rusby. Again, somewhat hard to find on the old internet but I found something that will do as in introduction for those who have never heard her before.
I heard her on the program 'Acoustic Sunrise' on a local radio station a few years back and I was impressed at how funny but beautiful were the combination of lyrics, music and her voice. If you want to delve deeper I recommend the albums Underneath the Stars, Little Lights and 10. If you can find a way I recommend listening to the cut "William and Davy" off of Little Lights.
As always, I hope you enjoy.
