  1. Thank you so much for this. Kate isn't well known in the U.S., and hasn't toured here in a very long time (if ever), so I've never had the pleasure of seeing her live. This is a real treat.

  2. Very nice! She been fairly prolific with Christmas music and does it so well.

    1. Indeed; such a gem. I hope more will discover her voice & music.
