Live Reviews: "Si’s fantastic technique and style on the guitar always goes down a storm at the festival and it was great to welcome him back!"(Chris Davis/CoventryJazzFestival)
"A classical Spanish style guitarist, who will blow you away with his jazz, latin and funk infused songs. How he manages it all on just a 6 string guitar still amazes us. You will have to see him to believe it!(AcousticLounge, Clapham)
Album Reviews: "Si Hayden with Michael Berk deliver an acoustic pearl called Tango Schizophrenia"(Dmitry M. Epstein, Let it Rock on 'The Alchemist's Vol II')
"Hayden is a very acomplished guitarist, with a good range of styles and moods."(fROOTS Magazine on 'Sabaca')
"It's really nice to hear new music with real musicians, I do a lot of programmed music, but there is something organic about poetry and well tuned musicians. And Si's work is just great, the double bass playing is spot on... it really sounds like the musicians overstood the poetry. Nice one."(Performance Poet Benjamin Zephaniah)
