Kate chats to Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2

Strange Fruit

“Strange Fruit” by Kate Bush (1996) – Bronze mounted on stone.

Jazz musician and singer, Jamie Cullum, is hosting a month-long “Billie & Me” feature to celebrate the centenary of Billie Holiday on his BBC Radio 2 show. On tomorrow evening’s show (Tuesday 31st March) at 7pm GMT, Kate shares her favourite track and talks about how Billie is an inspiration to her. We’re not sure if this is a new interview with Kate, or an excerpt from their previous chat in 2011.

Kate has long spoken of Billie Holiday as an inspiration, from wearing a flower in her hair in her early KT Bush Band gigs to her 1996 bronze sculpture, “Strange Fruit”, which she created for the War Child Milestones exhibition.

You can listen to Jamie’s show live on BBC Radio 2 here.

    It’s doubtful that this is new but hopefully we are surprised. 🙂
