" just simply love this record. When I first put the disc in my player, I was ready for a quick step review, but just a few bars in, I was going, “Whoa now… Hey, wow, these guys can really sing and pick. Great singing, terrific arrangements. From the contagious beat and happy feel of the opening track, “Fiddler’s Bend” to the final song, “After the Storm,” I could not wait too long, and I just had to listen to the whole CD all over again. And I was not disappointed the second time either. These songs are very special. I really cannot pick one favorite, because each took me to a place to which I wish to return to again and again. And I guess that is why it really does come back, comes back to a great love for what music can do. GET THIS CD!! Highly recommended!"

"Stephanie Bettman is an award-winning singer and fiddler with impressive versatility...a dulcet voice, pure and clear...Bettman and co. have plenty of cards up their sleeves and they deal them well."
