Album Notes
“How refreshing - the art of folk arrangement isn't dead after all! 

From the first track here, a fine, innovative, setting of Gordon Duncan's 'Pressed For Time' to the last track, 'Stor Mo Chroi', we have here a band who have decided that Celtic and traditional-based music deserves depth, light and shade, and above all, thought. Nothing here is either inappropriate or forced, and it's all beautifully presented by a band that's learned the first rule of instrumental expertise - clever and effective are not the same thing, and the latter will always hold enough of the former to impress any audience. 

The result is a confident, mature band that wears its flair lightly, knows how and when to drive the tunes and songs hard, and when to let the quieter mood prevail. The tradition is beautifully respected here - just listen to the gorgeous version of 'Sitting In The Stern Of A Boat' - but it's not treated like any sacred cow; whatever treatment's appropriate is used. The whole recording is pervaded by an overwhelming air of musicians who know how to let serious music speak, and when to let rip a bit and just have great fun.

The result is a beautiful, eclectic album - and I'm already looking forward to the next one.”

- Brian McNeill, Founding Member of The Battlefield Band

"The album is a triumph! The arrangements, performances, production and sequencing all come together in a way that makes for a wonderful listening experience. It's adventurous, intelligent, playful and ever so satisfying.

By the way, it's not like me to gush over new recordings. It just so happened that this one knocked my socks off."
Walt Haake, WDVR Radio Host - Celtic Sunday Brunch

"This high energy Celtic Folk band from Harleysville, PA is turning heads with their fourth release, Pressed for Time. Hip, haunting at times, and fast paced; their harmonies and hand for the craft make this a group to keep on eye on for sure."
"Americana Rhythm Music Magazine" #47 Oct. 2013
