“...a diverse ride between giddy Welsh reeling, healthy acoustic folk-pop with upfront attitude and brashness of youth. ”


“...there’s nowt as dear as folk – especially when played with the grace, daring and sheer joy this multi- instrumental five-piece bring to a winning selection of reels, jigs and hornpipes”

The Mirror

“Folk just got a kick up of the Noughties... stunning use of instrumentation, gorgeously crafted songs, sprightly foot-tappers, verve and raw excitement ”
