Hot Press Review of our gig at Bar 903

" Fling's facebook page describes their sound as high energy fusion folk, which would normally be enough to frighten most people away. In reality, on what is only their second gig, they're amazing. Bluegrass, traditional and gypsy sounds inform the melodies with killer harmonies, deadly rhythms and a big ol' double bass slapping away. Steve Earle's 'The Mountain' gets an outing with Maeve Kelly's vocals adding sublimely to the mix. There's a coherence here which belies their brief union. If Our Thursdays or Arthur's Day- just got that!- is about a worldwide celebration, they could do a lot worse than have Fling's traditional sound with a world music twist, light up the big stage." John Donnellan, Hot Press. Vol 34. Issue 15
