Rural Delivery brings a show of two halves to the Heartland. Four of the country’s busiest entertainers combine to present a night of toe-tapping country music and mischievous musical comedy that’s as keen and Kiwiana as anything you’ve had delivered through your letter box.

The Legal Tender Duo of Ian Campbell and Moira Howard have been performing an eclectic mix of country covers and originals around New Zealand for more years than they or anyone else care to remember. Sensitive guitar/bass arrangements of songs by Guy Clarke, Hank Williams, Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss are rendered with earthy integrity and exhilarating vocal harmonies.

Frequent collaborators with various members of the Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, their blend of alternative country and down-home original songs have delighted audiences from the Bay of Islands to The Deep South and recently netted them not one but four (count ‘em) gold guitar awards in Gore.

Carylann Martin contributes keyboard and accordion along with a sublime voice that will have the hair on the back of your neck stand up and applaud. A well-loved regular on the country music scene, her latest collaborations have been with duo Rusty and Rose and Kapiti four-piece social commentators Hen picked.

Andrew London’s quirky and satirical songs have long been the mainstay of popular swing trio Hot Club Sandwich and Tui-nominated country rockers The Cattlestops. Both groups provided him with a vehicle for mischievous musings on concrete block motels, pretentious socialites, society weddings and coffee culture; and contributed to feature films (Second Hand Wedding, No Petrol No Diesel), a year 13 English syllabus and National Radio’s ‘Best Song Ever Written’.

Rural Delivery offers a package of sweet harmonies, infectious rhythm and good-natured gently-irreverent humour from four friends determined to deliver the goods right to your front door.
