Woodman Folk Club - Reviews

It's only the song of the raven
Their famous, powerful, thought provoking, song about war
And the rain kept falling
This was only part of a wonderful evening with Risky Business when we learnt about the 23 year-old cat, Ruth’s gran aged 97 and the man who lived in Manchester – no house, just Manchester. All this was told us with flair and interest but it was eclipsed by the music.
We had End of the Day, Midnight Train and Going Home again from their latest CD plus the old favourites, Mystic Lipstick and Louisiana and many more. Finishing with one that Ruth sprang on Ken and Dave (was it due to the many requests?) Something in Red before the encore.
So, thank you Ruth, Ken and Dave for sharing your music with us. I look forward to next year about the same time, same place.
