"a work of considerable wit and imagination ... totally unique, quite unlike anything else you’ll hear this year" — Folk Radio UK
"These are more than songs sung to tunes ... there’s an unvarying, symbiotic fusion as vocals and instruments feed off each other to create songs with space and depth." — Folk Words
