“Youthful zeal, classical training, a penchant for old-time music, and a bountiful batch of original tunes make Taarka a string band deserving of attention…There are Gypsy-jazz, bluegrass, Celtic, chamber-folk, jazz, rock, and even Indian influences, all distilled through a gifted group that has toured extensively on the jam-band circuit, but who at its best sounds unlike anyone else in that genre…this eclectic quartet has harvested a bountiful feast of new string-band music... Vestal Flame”…one of the year’s best songs. ”
