Old time – fast, sharp, harsh and exciting as it should be. That’s the trio’s approach throughout – classy playing serving the songs without the flash and chrome they’re clearly capable of delivering. Jonathan Aird,  Independent

The Foghorn Trio have been cited as a significant player on the US folk and old-time music circuit. Cate Mitchell, Backroads


I haven’t heard another contemporary act who come as close to recreating the sound of mountain music as it was first recorded back in the middle decades of the twentieth century; it’s as if these guys have even got the mindset of those pioneers, so close do they come in every respect. It’s there in the feverish vigour of the fiddle playing, it’s there in the pacing, it’s there in the tone of voice when they sing and, most of all, it’s there in those little cracks in the otherwise perfect sound, the cracks where the honesty of their intentions shines through. John Davy, Flyin’ Shoes.
