“Woooooooooooooooooooohaaa! REAL Bluegrass! No hyphenations, to cross-genre guests, no electronic tricks or studio slickery, no acoustic versions of ‘70s Glam Rock, no Nashville Sound crooning, no “relevant” lyrics, no bodhrans. What a concept! For those who have been in despair, fearing that the whole genre has irrevocably sunk into the dishwater, crossed the tracks, or jumped the shark, young Stevie Barr is your savior.”

– Tom Peterson, Victory Review
