'Much loving care has plainly gone into the production of this CD. I liked it a lot. If you want to know what the
new generation of folk singer/songwriters are about, give this a hearing'.
- Buzz'

'For the most part, the arrangements are pure folk-revival: open-tuned guitar, fiddle, mandolins, with perhaps bass line. Some, like "Ship of Fools," have a sportier, bongo-driven pop sound touched with folk fiddling. In all it's quite an enchanting recording and a good introduction to a real talent'. -Dirty Linen USA
