4 Stars from R2 (Rock 'n' Reel) Magazine!! 

We have just received a 4 star review from R2 (Rock 'n' Reel) Magazine!! Big thanks to all there and to Colin Bailey for his kind words!! 

Here is a snippet: 'They are to be greatly applauded for the entirely self -penned compositions that they have come up with, and for the most impressive breadth of styles they demonstrate.'

Review from Acoustic Magazine! 

We have just received another review for our album, and this time it's from Acoustic Magazine! 

'As unusual lineups go, Threaded are off to a good start; guitar, clarinet and violin are not obvious bedfellows. Violinist Ning-ning Li is classical trained, and as a result when they strut something like the rollicking 'Captain Markham' , it comes over as more a piece of neo classical improvisation than a folky jig. Clearly inspiration is not a problem; Robert Browning's poem 'The Pied Piper Of Hamelin' morphs into 'A Secret Charm' , with the Potawatomi tribe of North America being the basis of 'Dreamfire', a song with suitable chanting. Where it's going is anyone's guess, but as we know, that often makes for the finest music.' JP

fROOTS album review!! 

We have just got our copy of fROOTS mag through the post, and there is a nice piece about 'of what we spoke' with a thumbs up!! :)

'Sparky trio of classically- trained young musicians sporting an unusual instrumental complement (clarinet, violin, guitar), taking a thrilling musical ride where inventive and melodically interesting tune-medleys alternate with thoughtful, quirky self-penned songs with assured vocal work.'

A great review from Bright Young Folk 

We have received our second album review for 'of what we spoke' from Bright Young Folk! And we are chuffed to bits with it! Big thanks to Su O'Brien for the lovely words!
