The Barnsley Nightingale

Kate Rusby is from Penistone, Barnsley, in the UK. I think she has a hauntingly beautiful voice. I hope you agree.

This is “I Am Stretched on Your Grave” from her 1997 debut album, Hourglass.

From the Wiki…

In 2001 The Guardian described her as “a superstar of the British acoustic scene.” In 2007 the BBC website described her as “The first lady of young folkies”. She is one of the few folk singers to have been nominated for the Mercury Prize.
