".....This is refined, thoughtful music with unexpected turns and twists and hints of influences from all over....."

Ray Langton, EDS Magazine, Summer 2010

".....The composition, arrangements and performance are all of a high order.....Paul Scourfield’s melodeon playing is crisp and punchy, the guitar work by Michael Davidson is cleverly understated, yet insistently present, while percussion doesn’t dominate thanks to Rob Gifford’s light but deft touch. The star feature though is Dave Blackmore’s clarinet and bass clarinet....."

Paul Davenport, froots magazine, Nov/Dec 2010

".....Their approach to dance music is innovative, adding contemporary rhythms and modern jazz riffs to imaginative arrangements, to produce music that is good to listen to and irresistible for dancing....."

Theo Thomas, Unicorn Magazine, Spring 2010

".....This is a superbly recorded album with great clarity shown to each instrument....."

Vic Smith, Sussex Folk Diary, Oct/Nov 2010
