Folk Roots: December 1997 Issue

We know, 90s fashion is a debate in itself!! The fact Kate still owns the exact pair of yellow trousers featured on the cover of Folk Roots magazine proves how legendary they are.

This edition of Folk Roots capped off a monumental year for Kate, as 1997 was the breakout year for her debut solo album Hourglass. The interview with Colin Irwin titled “Rusbymania” captured reader’s attention from the get-go. It details the success prior to Hourglass and highlights the impact Kate & Kathryn Roberts made in folk with their collaborative album in 1995. Other memorable topics covered within the article are the inception of Pure Records and growing up in a folk world.

Have a read of the interview below and relive the year 1997!
