“When they perform together what results is an audible form of pixie dust. Sincerity, simplicity and lovely remnants of our American musical culture are heard in every note. While it may be easy to use Americana as a gimmick, they have somehow managed to use this approach to connect with their own roots. This is more than a retrospective approach to art, it's become a journey to strengthen their own roots and sense of family.”
“This is, perhaps, Douglas County Daughters’ biggest appeal. Their music walks a fine line between the vintage and the contemporary: it is sentimental, but not trite; nostalgic, but not gimmicky; original, but true to the profound heritage of American music.”
“Though they’ve both made their homes in the Pacific Northwest — Mollie in Seattle, Emily here in Eugene — when you hear their music, it’s hard not to imagine that every song they sing is at least in small part a love song for home.”
“...every song, classic or original, is characterized by the sisters' memorable and effortless vocal harmonies.”
"It's kinda a guaranteed good time!"
"DCD is my favorite local band!"
"Love the harmony!"
"They are fantastic"
"Just plain COOL!"
"The vocal blending - very nice, a musical quality that made me think of theater music."
"Excellent singing, great harmony, keeping American folk songs alive. I also enjoy the humor and the variety of the tunes."
“Right now we’re very fortunate to have live in the studio, Douglas County Daughters...you guys have that wonderful blessing of having the perfect harmonics because of your sisterhood.”
"You two killed it! You really nailed the old style in every way. Very gifted, beautiful and top notch! There is nothin' out of place. Keep it up!"
"Beautiful sister harmonies that blend tenors so perfectly."
"Saw you at SoulFood. Awesome harmonies!"
"Beautiful classy women making awesome music!"
"Sisterhood! I hope to do what you do when I am able."
"I enjoy their singing and musical talent. The cuteness level is off the chart. The range of music styles is INCREDIBLE.
"On into the night, Douglas County Daughters play a set and Crooked River wraps up after midnight. I happened to catch Douglas County Daughters at last year’s Grrrlz Rock. The Daughters are drop dead gorgeous women with extraordinary voices."
"Original. Real. Honest. Beautiful. Classy."
"You are the best thing I know to have come out of Nebraska. So beautiful, so talented, and so clearly sisters!"
“That’s beautiful. You guys have beautiful voices. Really nice.”
“They hail from Douglas County Nebraska, where they were encouraged in music at an early age. Their harmonic bonds of sisterhood are strengthened by extensive musical educations and years of performance experience. Their eclectic take on the American Songbook fits right in here on the Revue.”
"...always great to hear well-matched voices"
"Great voices! Great look!"
"They are fantastic"
"Your a cappella harmonies transcend time. So tight. From a hundred years ago. You're a Vocal Time Machine!
"I don't know how anyone can drum like that and sing at the same time."
"The music will start at 1 PM with a performance from the sister duo of Emily Afanador & [Mollie] Ziegler. The two women put together a special set of acoustic bluegrass and Americana music especially for the festival. Of all the acts, Burgess singled out this group as something to look forward to. The specially crafted set commemorating Flaconer is an appropriate [way] to start the festivities."
"We love your beautiful music. What a perfect way to welcome Summer. Thank you!"
"You ladies are very beautiful and talented! And so enthusiastic! I love it!"
"I accidentally caught a show last year at the Axe and Fiddle and was impressed by the decidedly excellent quality voices of the featured duo “Douglas County Daughters”.

"[I appreciate] their harmonies and their friendly personalities."
"Great vocals and harmonies. Big sound for just two people."
"Great Harmony and yodeling. Diction was clear and easy to understand. Keyboard and drums sounded great."
“Y'all are adorable...talented...really really nice.”
“[I appreciate] your style - rhythmic, old-timey, joyous.”
"You can tell y'all are loving it up there and it comes off in the music."
"[I appreciate] the unique sound that your voices make together. You are very magnetic, and wonderful!"
“This would be great laying in the grass music…thanks for bringing some of that sunshine in with you…you made it brighter and more fun in here.”
"The anecdotes told before each song...gives such a meaningful feeling to each performance."
"...variety of songs and pure talent!"
"They are both very talented in playing the keyboard and drums while at the same time having great voices. Also they are both very beautiful and attractive.
"Wonderful music and fun interaction with the audience."
