"The last word in British folk music as far as i'm concerned. Amazing arrangements, brilliant guitar technique and voice."
John Renbourn
John Renbourn
"His first record (i think?). Very blusey, with incredibly adept guitar work (See- 'Down On The Barge')."
Wild and Undaunted

"Incredibly haunting vocals. Super interpretations of mostly trad songs. 'There U R' is amazing."

"Forget his current West Coast jam band and almost-celebrity persona, this is Banhart at the top of his whispery psychefolk game."
The Bramble Briar

"Best folk guitarist in Britain? Most probably. This record is mostly trad interpretations, 'Fair Annie' being the finest i think."

"No LP out yet! Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit are pretty much the best the promising new indie/folk scene  has to offer. Equally excellent are the first two 7 inches."

"Great guitarist."

"Long, droning, haunting songs. Bit of an acquired tatse, but perseverence pays off. Did an excellent cover of 'Rosemary Lane'."
Ys

"Amazing. Complexly constructed, orchestral, narrative driven (5 songs in an hour i think?), harp focussed classic."
Sung Tongs

"Stylistically all over the place, but always coherent. As far from trad folk as possible but completely enchanting."

"Gorgeous, sparse and haunting. 'Two Blue Lights' is maybe the best track."
The Creek Drank The Cradle

"Sam Beam's first. Whispery, lofi backwoods americana."

"A little bit groovy-er than i'd like but still classic."
