“Gerry McNeice's 2009 album SMALL TOWN BOY has left a good impression on me. Not just because it includes some familiar folk goodies but some fine original songs that have caught my attention, particularly Danger Sign, a father/son song of warmth yet devoid of overt sentimentality, that stays in your head once heard. Co-produced by Katriona Gilmore the album maintains a consistent sound throughout, with a crisp acoustic guitar ground augmented by banjo, mandolin, fiddle and melodeon. On 'Home', Jamie Roberts' atmospheric trombone playing blends perfectly with Jude Rees' oboe, bringing a beautifully nostalgic feel to an exceptionally good song. The traditional songs that Gerry has carefully chosen sit so well beside Gerry's own songs it's difficult at first to tell what's new and what's as old as the hills. That's good folk music I reckon.”
