"The band has earned a well deserved international reputation for performing traditional music and song with style, passion and authority. There are few bands playing traditional music today that can claim such a history or heritage. Like a good wine, there is a maturity laced with a palpable sense of celebration, a musical richness played by a band at the zenith of their career. Enjoy!!"
