Awkward Annie is the seventh studio album by English contemporary folk musician Kate Rusby, released on 3 September 2007 on Pure Records. The album is the first to be produced by Rusby herself, following her split with husband and producer John McCusker.[6]

Regarding her role as producer Rusby states that:

It wasn’t something that was planned, but the split from John two years ago has inevitably put a strain on our working relationship, and sadly meant that it wasn’t the right time for us to make a record together. So the best thing was to produce this record myself, it’s been a long and at times lonely road, but with help from [my brother] Joe we got there in the end. John still played on the record. He’s a brilliant musician and a great fella'.[7]

Song information

Rusby states that the track "Bitter Boy" is her favourite composition that she herself has written.[7]

"John Barbury" is set to a traditional melody, Child Ballad 89 ("Fause Foodrage"), while its lyrics originate from Child Ballad 100 ("Willie O Winsbury"). This tune became well known in the late 1960s after Richard Thompson used it as the basis for the Fairport Convention song "Farewell, Farewell".

The bonus track, a cover of The Kinks' song "The Village Green Preservation Society", was recorded as the theme for BBC TV sitcom Jam and Jerusalem.
