Jubilant Bridge / Press

“An amazing level of melodic richness and complex songwriting. The songs crafted by this duo are musical and lyrical tapestries that can be surprisingly deep and poetic.”

“The audience will be talking about your remarkable performance for a long time. They absolutely inhaled and savored your every song. You have the best sound and songs out there----a superb collaboration and cohesion of instrumental virtuosity and versatility.”

Brandi Haydn - Good Folk Coffee House, Norwalk, CT

“Jubilant Bridge is a joyful combination of stringed instruments (including Appalachian dulcimer) and exquisite harmonies. The vocal arrangements augment their well-played, well-thought-out material, including original and contemporary songs. They are truly fun to work with, and bring both enthusiasm and professionalism to their performance.”

Tom May, Producer - "River City Folk," WFMT Radio Network

“In an ocean of floating-on-the-surface popular music, Jubilant Bridge is a deep sea dive into a magical world of iridescent color, a mysterious coral reef, brilliant with flickering, darting images, that you gradually recognize as the contours of your own soul.”

Nancy Weaver - Wit's End Productions

“Not to say that, as far as singer/songwriter duos go, Simon and Garfunkel have been outdone, but I think Jubilant Bridge is close. Their songs are characterized by very intimate musicianship coupled with strong emphasis on what exactly the songs are saying. They have created a refreshing brand of music rooted in tradition that goes far beyond the reaches of any normal acoustic duo, but into that of the omnipotent observer of their bittersweet, and sometimes, ironic world.”

“Your harmonies are so tight, they pulse.”

Mary Cliff - WETA-FM

“Jubilant Bridge is not only helping to keep acoustic music alive, but they are also challenging its borders....with a fresh and innovative style.”

Tim Van Schmidt - Fort Collins Coloradoan

“Your song, “Four Common Men Create the Weather,” was perhaps the best Beatles tribute song I have heard. Great music, writing, and harmonies. ”

Hardy Holm - KZUM, Lincoln, NE

“Vocalist Carol Van Alstine has a striking voice---clean, crisp, and far purer than Michael Jackson’s fondness for gloves. “Before You Fly” and “Four Common Men Create the Weather (Diamonds)” are gorgeous. Jubilant Bridge is well worth crossing.”

John Roberts - Westword

“A hybrid folk choir sound that is unique, with beautifully blended harmonies, and very full, often richly orchestrated arrangements....poetic, free-spirited originals. A rich aural feast. ”

Victory Review

“Great harmony vocals....compelling dulcimer playing. Van Alstine’s lyrics are intelligent and thoughtful.”
