Absolutely brilliant … ancient and modern at exactly the same time … I love it!’       Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

‘Arbennig’    Georgia Ruth, BBC Radio Cymru

‘Canny trio from Aberystwyth who understand trad sources be they Welsh or English and give a different spin to the very familiar. They’ve a dulcimer and they’re not scared to use it! Unusual arrangements, atypical instrumental accompaniments mean that songs that you might believe are common currency prove surprising winners in the rise again stakes. You’ll like this y’hear? A winner.’  fROOTS Magazine (November 2016)
