"It's a matter of receptiveness, of openness to a tradition...(they) show sensitivity and respect for the people who "made" this music...(The music) is beautiful but there is another side to this band that must be experienced in the flesh: humor...I've seen full barrooms grow so quiet I could hear the soda fizz in my glass. And I've seen audiences so convulsed with laughter that minutes had to pass before the show could go on."

- Joe Wilson, National Council of Traditional Arts
