Reviews:

"You are having fun and so are the dancers. We

enjoyed listening to your CD...." Great Meadow Music

"THE CD IS GREATTTTTTTT....." Anne T. New Hampshire

"Makes for a traditional sound that is most appealing..." Celtic Beat Magazine

"Hi, Ryan, Thanks so much for the CD.  It’s great! I didn’t want to get out of the car this

morning because I was still listening to it.  You were right, I love the arrangements;

they’re captivating.  The person on hammered dulcimer is very talented, too.  It adds a

lovely touch.  That “Swinging on a Gate” you mentioned is really nice, too.

Thanks again."
