    “Through a background ranging from champion Maryland string bands to the Celtic American fusion band, The Caledonia Ramblers, Kate Lissauer has built a reputation as one of the finest exponents of old-time American music on the scene. This, her third album, recorded between the US and the UK (where she is now resident) can only add to that reputation.

    Though no slouch on banjo – listen to the simple take on ‘Willie Moore’with its dnging picking adding homely wistfulness to the ballad’s pathos, it’s Lissauer’s fiddle playing that dazzles throughout. Her playing has that beautiful rhythmic sway beneath the melody lines that is guaranteed to getfeettapping, with the likes of ‘Falls Of Richmond’ and ‘Hell Among The Yearlings’ really kicking up the sawdust.

    The vocal performance, too, is impressive. Bryan Bowers’stitle track, to which Lissauer has added her own verses, resonates with yeaming, while the rattling ‘Reuben’s Train’ rips along with excellent choruses from the assembled cast of supporting musicians. Ballads, blues and fiery fiddle tunes; Kate Lissauer has them covered, animating her old-time sources with verve and style.”

    “One of the most gifted exponents of old-time country…If you want a good solid oldtime record with that extra layer of emotional credibility and depth, then it’s a simple decision: go for Kate straightaway”
