"Tom Kitching is one of the best English fiddlers ever – he plays with fire and gusto, energy, intelligence and feel – takes English folk music by the scruff of the neck and sends it off laughing and dancing and having a good time, The more I listen to this album the more it grows on me - Damn good stuff." Mike Harding.
"With his insistent, attacking technique and a brilliant ear for arrangement, Kitching has brought an adventurous, almost indie sensibility to English folk fiddle playing. A beautiful, enthralling debut." The Sunday Express.
"It’s an iridescent collection of fiddle tunes running the spectrum of traditional dance to vivid and expansive innovation." Folkwords.
"An outward facing, forward looking English music album." Tom Kitching.
