Life in a Paper Boat

A stunning---stunning---record. Virtually everything Kate Rusby does is touched with excellence. But this latest outing is something quite special---the very best work she's done since "Underneath the Stars," some 13 years ago. The title track and "Night Lament" alone are worth the price of admission. Rusby's voice remains a treasure here--silvery clear, wondrously ethereal. A marvelously atmospheric wedding of moving lyric to luscious sound. A beautiful, beautiful album and an absolute "must buy" for any Rusby devotee. . . .

Exceptional Album by a Peerless Performer

Listening to Kate Rugby sing is a joyous endeavor, especially with these songs. Each one is a gem of modern British folk music, particularly the mesmerizing title track, an atmospheric, brooding meditation on risk and reward. She wrote it for the refugee crisis, but it seems to fit almost any one looking for a better situation. This is Kate's most mature album. It is beautifully realized and offers me much needed solace in this roiling world. See for yourself.
