"There were a number of highlights, with Folky Strum Strum being mentioned by a number of festival goers, as an amazing surprise, lead singer Iyan Iyan George Bruvold has a voice every bit as unique and plaintive as Eddy Vedder, only he sings while also rocking the banjo."
"We were glad to have you as part of the festival. FSS was a great addition to our 2014 line-up. Smooth tunes and a great stage presence made them an act not to be missed."
"Folky Strum Strum are all local favorites in their own right and have recorded and performed to the delight of audiences in the prairies and beyond."
"To say Iyan is a prolific songwriter would be an understatement. And I'm not going to lie, I would hand over my first born child for Reno's mandolin skills"
"The group has been described by fans as having a unique and soulful sound, that is backed by exceptional songwriting. These musical collaborations remind you that; sometimes "life is life" and enjoy what you have and who you are in the moment."
“Honourable Mention for the "contest to win a scholarship to IMA's four day Songwriting Workshop, July 27 - 30 with folk legend Ken Whiteley."”
