It is a cause for celebration when The Frost Is All Over, a time to remember that spring is on its way, that the desolate feeling, the icy grip of a winter’s chill is but fleeting and so is the frost when the warmth of a good soul can find it in their hearts to allow the frigid nature of life to come back alive. For Kate Rusby, the warmth comes over in waves, in which ever guise her career has taken, the endless enthusiasm; the very natural air of her work spreads the passion of Folk far and wide.

To see an artist enjoy themselves, to witness the little escaping of glee and cheer from their mouths after every song, is perhaps one of the great thrills in life. It certainly makes for an entertaining evening and enhances the overall pleasure of a listening to a set of songs delivered with beautiful precision and cheer.
