Mark Sustic - Founder, Champlain Valley Folk Festival

"... a refreshing and unique take on traditional dance and vocal music ...  some great poetry and music ... always driving, enthusiastic and expertly played. Just try to listen without moving something. I can’t do it!"

"... Turning the Compass, a pinnacle of performance reflecting ten years of growth deep into the heartwood of North American folk traditions ... a living picture of the complex and interwoven history of New England culture and music ... the original pieces flow naturally from these roots ...”
