“There’s gospel, fiddle music, square dance, early country and bluegrass but most of all, it’s got a sense of wonder and adventure in its grooves” The Big Takeover
“This is old-time stringband playing at its best” Country Music People
“Many are called, but few are chosen. On their new recording Devil in the Seat, Foghorn Stringband proves once again that they are still the Chosen Ones when it comes to down-home, foot-stomping, ass-kickin’ old time music.” Fiddlefreak
“This is old-time American string band music that comes through as fresh as tomorrow’s sunrise and with equal sparkle. The Foghorn Stringband take inspiration from yesterday and hurls it reeling into tomorrow, and with a musical pedigree a mile long, delivers an album that offers all you would expect and more besides.” FolkWords
“There’s not a foot put wrong here – coruscating mandolin; wild and blazing fiddle; sure-footed drive and rhythm and heart-stopping storytelling. But I think my favourite aspect of the whole thing is the awesome harmony singing of Reeb and Nadine on the yodel-filled Mining Camp Blues and the blood-curdlingly poignant a cappella What Will We Do? Truly queens of the highways and hedges.” fRoots
“This American foursome cocks some mighty keen ears in the direction of American old-time music, and this latest collection sees them in the finest of form, with their songbooks, harmonies and fiddle lines criss-crossing state lines with capricious abandon.” The Irish Times
“The Foghorns are acknowledged masters of their instruments, mighty vocalists and true explorers of the past, as well as futurists by bringing these songs to a contemporary audience.” Lonesome Highway
“absolutely everything they do is of the highest quality” No Depression
“among the finest practitioners of American old-time music on the globe, a string band whose faithful renditions of songs from bygone decades are no less than living, breathing history.” Portland Mercury
