"Unique and technically brilliant progressive Americana and world music." -- Take 5, Asheville NC

"Meeting River was one of the highest experiences in my life. Having someone in that spiritual and musical level is a great blessing for me. Life is a great mystery to live, not a problem to solve; this is true when I am with him."

Omar Faruk Tekbilek

"...Primo Duetto for Reso and Viola by Billy Cardine. This classically styled piece had incredible tone and depth with only two instruments in the mix. The textures of the tones were quite emotive and the performance was spectacular."

The Bluegrass Blog

"... the sharp-as-a-tack attack of Cardine’s dobro playing. He shows an instinctive ability on when to go country, when to lay back and when to add some psychedelic or Middle Eastern flavor to his sound."

The Mountain Times Boone, NC

"Cardine [was] shredding with a fury that would’ve given Jimi goosebumps".


"Guerguerian made magical sounds"

The New York Times

"...the live music provided by River Guerguerian was creative and spectacular. Asheville is truly fortunate to have world class musicians"

Asheville Citizen-Times

““Billy Cardine is an amazing Dobro player. I couldn’t have picked a better example for them of where the Dobro is now or what the possibilities are with the instrument.””

Jerry Douglas

“Billy Cardine proves to be one of the new generation of resonator guitar players who truly understands the possibilities of the instrument.”

Bluegrass Unlimited

““Guerguerian's composition, sensationally performed, devoted itself even more religiously to the possibilities of pure sound.””

The New York Times
