Mrs Yarringtons Music Club
Crowhurst Park

Tuesday March 20th

Reuben's Train

Before they take their 3rd visit to Towersey Festival in August, the wonderful Reuben's Train drop into Mrs Yarringtons for a performance. Reuben's Train are duo Mick Watson (Vocals, eyebrows) and Keith Osbourne ( Vocals, Guitar, Banjo & Sideburns); always dressed in black and singing songs - some traditional and some not - about murder, mayhem, incest and injury and all from the darker side of life ... often leaving audiences not quite sure how to react! Reuben's Train put the sorrow and the drama back into the songs.
The influential Time Out magazine wrote "Exceptionally entertaining black-clad duo, whose dramatic presentation of American and English traditional and not-so-traditional classics play up the melodrama with wry humour."
If you are into the upbeat styling of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits interjected with some dark humour ... this is not to be missed.

Tickets ?6 members & non members ?10 which includes membership for the year.
