                                      Kent Hoffman; producer, Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Toronto

 

“…an illustrated survey of American roots music, with the erudite Mr. Nemerov sharing his insight…the details he has at his fingertips such as his stories of Irish drystane dyke workers on a Tennessee plantation [make for]  a frequently fascinating trawl.”

                                      The Herald, Glasgow, Scotland

 

“…enjoyable, laid-back rambles…with warmth, chops and a deep knowledge of how to use them.”

                                      Blaine Dunlap; filmmaker, Emmy winner, New Orleans

“Bruce’s show at Leith yesterday was breathtaking—150 years of American folk music in 2X45 minute sets. As much an education as a fantastic performance, delivered by a delightful man.”

                                        Leith Folk Club, Edinburgh, Scotland

 

“…straightforward no-frills style has a homespun, archaic charm and the overall effect is charming.”
