Kate Rusby delighted the folk scene with HOURGLASS, her first solo album, in 1997. An earlier record with Kathryn Roberts had been voted Best New Album of 1995 in the prestigious Folk Roots annual poll. Both singers had then joined the talented Lakeman brothers in a promising new group Equation, but Rusby ducked out before the band signed with multinational Warners. Ironically, Equation's major label debut disappeared without trace, while Rusby won plaudits for her own-label album.
Much of the material is wholly or partially traditional, including the opening "Sir Eglamore" and a fine "Annan Waters." Rusby's own "A Rose in April" is very much in the tradition. Variety comes in the form of a pretty instrumental prelude ("Stananivy"), a country waltz from the repertoire of fiddler and producer John McCusker ("Radio Sweethearts"), and an adaptation of the anonymous poem "I am Stretched on Your Grave," previously tackled by Sinead O'Connor. Amongst the musicians accompanying Rusby are guitarist Ian Carr and accordion player Andy Cutting.
