'If there were a pub session in heaven, it would sound like this.'
'I sometimes wonder what a foreigner's (even your average Englishman's) idea is of English music. I think if Magpie Lane travelled as ambassadors of our music and song they really couldn't be bettered for a lively interpretation which respects the tradition.'
'Well performed and programmed and accessible without compromising what made the music special in the first place.'
'Should a Guatemalan musicologist stop you in the street in the next few days and ask you to define the essence of English Folk Music, save yourself a great deal of breath, keep your mouth firmly closed and just give him this album by Magpie Lane'
