The bands full history and bio available but I think the press for their latest album speaks for itself...

“The band knock up a fierce, raw and earthy music that is the stuff of Mumford & Sons dreams. The results are as compelling as they are oppressively bleak” (Maddy Costa, The Guardian)

“Surging vocal harmonies riding a railroad of strings” (Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman, 4 stars)

“Let Me Wipe The Tears From Your Eyes, lovely song isn't it? I really like the track” (Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2)

“More than simple roots-music revivalism” (Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times)

“They know how to write a song that band” (Mark Lamarr, BBC Radio 2)

“Those harmonies, especially A cappella, are glorious, and the playing is out of the top drawer too” (Keith Bruce, The Sunday Herald)

“A smart conflation of Celtic tradition and bluegrass played with rare intuition” (Rob Hughes, Uncut)

“Absorbing third album...restrained harmonies on a series of rugged songs” (

Colin Irwin, MOJO)

“Everything about this album has the mark of authenticity as opposed to revivalism ... the harmonies throughout are amazing” (Mike Morrison, Maverick, 5 stars)
