"Two Local Bands Show Alaskans Know Bluegrass"

Review from the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:

Two Local Bands Show Alaskans Know Bluegrass

by David A. James

After reviewing Joe Page's CD, he writes:

"The band Rural Delivery plays in a more conventional mode on 'Hardly a Town at All'.

Though perhaps less polished, this quintet has the rugged authenticity that fans of traditional music crave.

The playing is solid, the material covers lots of bases while maintaining a unified sound, and the approach is pure back porch.

The group handily tackles standards like "Sitting on Top of the World" and "How Mountain Girls Can Love" as well as plenty of lesser-known tunes. A handful of instrumentals show just how well these folks can play. And bassist Ken Brown's original, 'Fools Rush In (Where Fools Have Been Before)' has all the elements of a great country song: a well-worn cliche turned slightly askew, an artful blend of humor and heartbreak, and hooks that stick in your brain long after the song has faded out.

Both of these releases can stand proudly alongside anything being produced by national bluegrass acts, proving that we needn't look any further than our collective backyard for some great music." - Fairbanks Daily News-Miner


As Rural Delivery, we released a CD, "Hardly a Town at All", in 2007. As the Porch Dogs, we released an all-originals CD in September 2009.



What started as a generic bluegrass band singing bluegrass standards became an acoustic, Americana band that performs original songs of exceptional quality.
