62 THE LIST 18 Mar—l Apr 2004
HORSE As she rose to prominance in the early 90$ after an appearance on The Tube and the release of her debut album The Same Sky, it became clear Horse MacDonald is always more than content to take her own distinct musical path. She is fortunate enough to have a truly beguiling voice so she finds that many will follow. A new album Coveted is out on her own Randan label - a collection of her favourite cover versions — which she will no doubt be showcasing at these two home turf shindigs. (Mark Robertson)
