"Wow - that was a great concert! Needfire maintains its Celtic flavor in every song they play. The rock influence is clear and strong, but it never overpowers the Celtic. The energy was terrific. I hope they'll be back again soon."
"Needfire has proven that they belong to the top acts of Celtic rock."
"...accessible to an audience far beyond its Celtic roots."
"Needfire perfects the art of the rock ’n’ roll bagpipe..."
"...just at ease in the rock songs as in the ballads...Needfire is fresh and explosive!"
"One of today's most popular Celtic rock bands."
"They are tremendous instrumentally,” said Robert Harrison, president of the Games. “They have great vocals. They are contemporary, but still use a lot of traditional Celtic melodies. I think they are probably one of the top three Celtic bands in North America right now."
"For Sharon Benson of Salina Arts and Humanities, choosing Needfire to close the festival was a no-brainer. ‘I wanted a good, strong finish for the festival, and they were so popular last year and knew how to work the crowd,’ she said."
"Needfire is one of the best in the nation."
