“Aoife O’Donovan’s expressive vocals are but a part of the composite that forms when this quintet purrs along on all cylinders. Joined by bassist Corey DiMario, banjo player Greg Liszt, cellist Tristan Clarridge, and fiddler Brittany Haas, the finger picking and bow-playing layers add depth and balance that makes even the saddest moments full and emotive. To put it bluntly, these people are amazing.” -www.blogcritics.org
The Boston Herald
“These experimental traditionalists live up to their name. They’re still connected to the folk past, yet they are gloriously crooked. And as affecting as whiskey… a triumphant show.”
