"The best new traditional band to emerge from Ireland this century." Wall Street Journal.

"Top-drawer… some of the best music in the world today." Irish Music Magazine.

"One of the reasons this album is such a joy is that you can hear them keeping up the traditional line, but adding mischievous lines of chords and bass and stunning bodhrán rhythms. If you have a taste for ceili music, you will hear it... This album is fun, furious and fast changing in pace, and is a brilliant, shining example of how inventive and passionate musicianship makes traditional music live forever!" Annemarie de Bie, Living Tradition.
