Alison Brown Quartet’s DVD Live at Blair, "...offers up a delightful mix of jazz and Irish-based folk music...If you like easy listening, intricate music, you can’t make a better choice." (Country Standard Time)
Old Blind Dogs’ "Dynamic percussion, polished vocals, soaring fiddle and stirring pipes fuel the delicately-phrased melodies and traditional songs." (Paddy Punx) OBD’s Wherever Yet May Be’s, "’Where Are You Now’, with its lazy slide guitar, is probably the winning song, while elsewhere the album full of rich acoustic/electric instrumental texture, from the measured opening air of a St Kilda love song to the closing contemporary joust with some ’Desperate Fishwives’." (Scotland on Sunday)
Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band (live at Johnny D’s), "...may have a bunch of decades under his belt - he’s 68 - but the Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band showed they have a lot left in the tank." (Country Standard Time) "It was one of those concerts where at several points my mouth just dropped open from astonishment at what I was hearing." (Notes From All Under)
