I was lucky enough to attend this year’s Underneath The Stars Festival which featured a fantastic line up of performers including headliners Newton Faulkner, Show of Hands and Kate Rusby, celebrating her 25th year of performing.
Next year’s dates have all ready been planned (July 20th – 22nd July) and tickets will be available soon .
Well done to the organisers and volunteers for another successful year.
On this 25th year, Kate has finally released her album Life in a Paper Boat on Vinyl, limited to a pressing of 500 copies. These LPs are hand numbered on the rear of the sleeve. See all the details of the Life in a Paper Boat vinyl on their website and make sure you get yours!
This is Kate’s 14th studio album, and includes the singles Hunter Moon, I’ll Be Wise and Big Brave Bill. Now available to spin on your record player, or even keep sealed as a collectors item.
