*****

"The veritable song-writing talent of [Barry Wake]... [Siobhan''s] utterly charming vocals... her voice at times exhibiting echoes of Maddy Prior... The instrumental accompaniment of Chris Nelson is always sympathetic to the material and a joy to listen to." (Mike Wilson, https://www.tradebit.com - CD review)

"Spine-tingling vocals... complemented by sensitive fiddle and guitar arrangements.... A hard act to follow..." (Folk on Tap - concert review)
