Being able to spend a Sunday afternoon listening to two local singer-songwriters is a rarity especially when the two in question are Ric Neale and Shaun T Hunter. At a packed Fernandes in Wakefield, Ric played the first set with class and feeling which set the scene for a thoroughly chilled out afternoon. When he sang “Run for the hills” nothing could have been further from the minds of the music lovers present. Shaun T Hunter was his usual exceptional self, seeing Shaun “live” and it’s easy to see why he was successful at the recent Leeds Music Awards. His set included songs from his previous albums plus a glimpse of what to expect from his soon to be launched CD. It is hoped the launch of the CD and tour will take place in Leeds within the next few weeks. Such was the effect after being chilled out for two hours by these two quality performers, the world didn’t seem too bad a place after all !.
