Here’s what the experts are saying:
From the toe-tapping string work of “All I Got’s Gone” to
the bluesy rag of “Babe,” the album sports a delicious assortment of different classic styles.
…exquisite Americana music.
Ear to the Ground
Surprising, subtle dimensionality that makes this a lot more than
just a couple of musicians showing off their (considerable) instrumental skills.
This excellent recording not only shows off the duo’s command of their instruments and the genre
but gives an indication that in this twenty first century the old music is being kept alive and is thriving,
albeit with a modern touch, something that is so important now that the originators are long gone.
It is musicians such as these that have the skill to not only play in the tradition but to bring their own
individuality to the genre which surely is what ‘folk’ music is all about.

Engelberg’s fiddle shines throughout, especially on “Dream Shadows” and “McKinney Waltz.”
Old-time and ragtime aficionados will enjoy breakdowns and blues from this talented duo.
Skillet Licorice’s debut recording is full of clever
arrangements, hot licks, slippery melodies, and enough of their
musical pals to make it a party – plus a sprinkling of sweet modern
flair that really sets it apart from the average old-time revivalist fare.
