What the critics have said...
'An excellent album.'
Andy Hemsley, reviewer, English Dance and Song magazine.

'If there were a pub session in heaven, it would sound like this.'
Sing Out! (USA)

'A generous collection.'
Jim Lloyd, BBC radio presenter, Folk on Two.

'Should a Guatamalan musicologist stop you in the street in the next few days and ask you to define the essence of English Folk Music, save yourself a great deal of breath, keep your mouth firmly closed and just give him this album... The playing of this seven piece band, accompanied by friends who include Chris Leslie, is flawless... This is a collection to warm the heart.'
Jon Sims, reviewer, Folk on Tap magazine.

Brian Cope, reviewer, Folk London.

'Continually exciting and varied.'
