Additional review are below:

"If you like well-performed string band music, I can certainly recommend Red Hen."

–Steve Ramm, 'Anything Phonographic'

"Old timey music at its best, with some unexpected and very good newer material, by a band comprised of two couples with many years experience playing in other bands and as duos."

–Bruce Cameron, 'Come All Ye,' Bathhurst, Australia

"...Red Hen Stringband strut proudly honoring the traditions and adding a freshness with faith in their instruments and abilities. The quartet take American Roots back to the land it once called home, with music and vocal inflections touching ground across the Atlantic, into the mountains rising up from the British Isles on tracks such as "Jute Mill Song" and "Martin Said to His Man." They cross back over the water bridge heading "Down in Mississippi" and up into the mountains taken as home turf with "Blue Yodel #3" and "Smithland Farm"."
