  RETURN is a luminous collection of songs and tunes.  The songs are exquisite, varied, and notable for evocative lyrics and beautiful melodies.  ” - Steve Arkin

— Old-Time Herald

Their vocals are acrobatic, spirited, precise and nuanced ... With a hauntingly eerie guitar (and) modal dual vocals (Fine Horseman) sounds as fully orchestrated as any multi-tracked extravaganza. ” - Steven Stone

It's great that Jody and Kate are back to show us all how it should be done.” - TD

Wow, wow and wow! A feast of an album. Several hair-raising moments, many smiles and wah's, and a few tears, too (listening to Calloused Hands). What a treat. ” - H.C.

 Wow, what a pleasure! Enough familiar to feel completely comfortable, enough new to justify the wait and set the whole effort apart from all else before. I loved the Lal Waterson song, the Joseph Spence sendup, Rivers of Texas, a bunch of things. Mostly the overall thing. And the cover photo is one of the best of you guys I've ever seen. Plus, you just don't encounter phrases like "with chromatic passages that evoked Heaven as cocktail lounge cum mortuary" just anywhere. Bravo!” - P.H.

      A SONG THAT WILL LINGER   If any of their previous work has touched you than this will poleaxe you. They are one of the great musical duos, bar none.” - Ken Hunt

— Folk Roots

Jody Stecher and Kate Brislin evoke the music’s heart and soul. They elicit those same timeless intangibles that allow the Carter Family’s, Bill Monroe’s and the Stanley Brothers’ music to endure. In doing so, they’ve made an album that stands alongside those revered masters.” - Laurence Baeur


This record has a magical quality that words fail to describe adequately.  I find its title most apt. ” - Jan Jerrold

— British Bluegrass

    BLUE LIGHTNING       Nominated for NAIRD Indie Award   HOT PLATTER!: It's hard to think of any other younger generation practitioners of old-time country music better than this team. Graceful, subtle, and full of style.”
