" guided by fire.  Struthers has come up with some of the most quietly powerful narratives within the new wave of Americana artists.  The sound of the Party Line has progressed to propulsive electric guitar and drums, and Struthers' sweet voice showing and edge, the better to meet the challenge. "   Ann Powers, NPR Music

"Fans of the Dixie Chicks, Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton, take notice: Nora embodies everything you could want in an Americana singer-songwriter."  ​NPR Music

"Struthers has undergone one of the more fascinating transformations in contemporary roots music.  She is a fiercely intelligent, put together and independent woman ."    Nashville Scene

"Eric Bibb is one of the finest of black American exponents of acoustic blues, an engaging performer and a rousing guitarist who is blessed with a remarkable voice.  He has long been established as a cult hero..."   The Guardian (London) 

As the godson of Paul Robeson, nephew of John Lewis and the son of Leon Bibb (founder of the Modern Jazz Quartet) Eric Bibb was raised in an environment where music matters crucially. He brings that same intensity, along with what the Dayton Daily News calls "grace, elegance and gentleness," to the concert state as a mature and popular performer.  Nominated for nine W.C. Handy Blues Music Awards and a Grammy that speaks of his ability to "use standard blues ingredients and to cook up something all his own."  

“Fueled by brilliantly artistic guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, he combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics. "   Boston Globe   

"David Wilcox's ongoing musical journey is...compelling and richly deserving of a listen. ”    Rolling Stone 

For David.., music is a personal compass for finding his way home.  Lining it up with something deep inside, his words become image-fille poetry that dance to an internal rhythm.  Challenging situations, elusive ideas, and long-suppressed feelings are directed into inspiring metaphors of hope.  Coupled with a seamless melody, it is all delivered in the language of his heart. "       Performing Songwriter

"Three unique voices separate and intertwine to emit one call, channeling sounds from the Delta and bits of old Gospel guises and transcends this Boston trio's urban roots ."  Audiotree 

"It's a trio, alright, though Ballroom Thieves may occupy the space a little outside the textbook Americana dirt road bailiwick. ..This guitar, cello & drums threesome seethes and rages like a preacher who has run out of things to say.  The urgency and might is something this band achieves without the temptation of electricity and volume.  The band stomps and howls.  Come to the show and you'll do the same, I promise. Choice Concerts      

The Newport Folk Festival has taken notice of The Ballroom Thieves' rise selecting them to play on the Main Stage at this summer's festival.  We expect an unforgettable night in our intimate venue!     
Nora Jane Struthers & The Party Line

A Music Series
Season 9
 "There's nothing pretentious about Dala's music; it's stripped down and laid bare.  Thats not to say it is without polish - far from it.  Sheila Carbine and Amanda Walther have worked hard to exploit every facet of their extraordinary musical blend, and it would be just as at home in a 1960's coffeehouse as it is now on the contemporary concert stage."    Andrew Craig, Host of CBC "Canada Live"  

Their music has been nominated for Juno Awards (the Canadian form of Grammy) and they have been featured in a nationally broadcast show entitled "The Girls of the North Country."  

"Dala can sing!  What beautiful flights of melody and harmony reminiscent of the Everly Brothers, the Louvin Brothers, Emmy Lou Harris and associates; though Dala can trade a melody line and leave one wondering who is taking the lead and simply leave one behind  when the harmonies kick in."   Peterborough Times
