"Crikwater’s debut CD, Don’t Stop ‘til the Ship Goes Down, delivers exactly what Buffalo has come to expect from...this self-described 'energetic roots folk with an edge'... finger picking guitar peppered with harmonica twang, mandolin melodies that tug at the heartstrings, banjo that brings the listener down to the old homestead, tin whistle that will get the most timid toes tapping and vocals that invite listeners to sing along...and a few new gems that may tempt the listener who otherwise thinks his or her Irish canon is already full."

“Crikwater takes Buffalo by Storm : Crikwater was formed because they saw a need for young musicians in Buffalo to play traditional folk music...to be sure that style of music is carried on for generations to come...The boys from South Buffalo ... are thrilled with the response they’ve gotten throughout the Western New York community.”

“Crikwater plays a variety of traditional Irish songs...The songs are important, Caulfield said, because they provide a sense of where the Irish people have been. 'It's living history...It's one way to tell the story of the Irish people.' ”
