"If A Prairie Home Companion did a kids' show, this would be the music they'd play throughout."
"Little Boots is a sweet little disk your family may find itself listening long after you've packed up the crib. Recommended."
"Great Music. Period."
"There is no preconceived notion of what kids may or may not like. It's simply an album of good songs, played exquisitely by very talented musicians."
Lauded for "playing with heart as well as virtuosity," Brendan Taaffe is a prominent guitarist, fiddler and singer in New England's thriving Irish music scene. Little Boots, an album recorded over two years, is his most personal project to date. Linking songs learned from his father with musical explorations in Irish, American and Shona traditions, Little Boots presents African-inflected lullabies and Irish kid’s songs—all recorded with Brendan’s young nephew in mind.
A juried artist with the Vermont Arts Council, Brendan is available for performances and school residencies. He tours, both nationally and internationally, with Magic Foot and Turtle Dove.
