Finally Meeting This is the Kit.

I was somewhat late in finding about This is the Kit, a folk project of Kate Stables, originally from Bristol and now based in Paris. We have so little exposure to British folk in the U.S., particularly on the west coast, as European artists are more likely to visit New York than, say, California, and it's really only possible from our end because the internet and sites like Bandcamp exist.
