General comments:

Kate In The Kettle takes traditional and her own neo-traditional material and sets them in melodic yet edgy soundscapes. Edgy and yet highly listenable, oddball and individual and gorgeous. Jim says it's Eliza Carthy mixed with Jorane, and I say with maybe a touch of Iva Bittová. (Neile)
