Concert at Club Sunday 8 October, Reviewed by Margorie Mitchell
With “just a desire to entertain” Rural Delivery succeed from every angle. A comedy night – with incidental music – was an understatement offered from one of the band during the show.
With well over twenty musical offerings, the Folk Club audience certainly got their money’s worth – in the quantity sense. But this group are more than just quantity – they offer an infinite variety of relaxed, polished and surprising entertainment. The band members have a good repartee between themselves, and this comes across to the audience with style.
They were well practiced and it showed. I thoroughly enjoyed all the items. Personally I loved If I Be Lifted Up they opened the show with. Also Save Your Heart, Freight Train Boogie, Hot Corn Cold Corn and Amelia Earhart’s Last Flight. In between there were (give or take cramped hands) about six instrumental numbers. Notable were West Border Express and Pony Express. Such variety kept the audience happily wanting more at the end.
Thanks Errol, John, Steve, Russell and Clive. Bluegrass music is all the better for your expertise. Excellent entertainment indeed.
