“With superb playing and wonderful melodies, the Bow Tides’ debut album is beyond lovely. There are great new tunes, sparkling arrangements, and there is obvious love on display for the music that fiddlers Katie, Ellery, and Jessie have heard and absorbed from people and places along their musical journey. Track to track, they, along with Jeff on guitar, and Eric on bass, draw us in.
Their music is rousing, then poignant, and at all times heartfelt.
A fantastic debut–BRAVO!” – Liz Carroll
“There are so many reasons to love this album – “Sailing On” jumps right out of the speakers and grabs the listener’s attention from the opening set of original jigs through to the high octane ‘High Drive’ reel at the very end. Killer tunes, fab fiddling, sophisticated and intoxicating arrangements, tasteful and masterful accompaniment – packaged up with overall quality production and sound.
Jessie, Katie, Ellery, Jeff and Eric have also managed to capture that oh so elusive element with a studio recording … ‘energy’ , ‘playfulness’ and ‘pizzazz’!” – Kevin Crawford
