“Carols is exceptional, from start to finish. And, sure, it’s overall a Celtic set, but the band brings a multitude of influences to the music which not only keeps the whole thing sounding fresh and original, but should also draw in some folks more partial to Folk, Classical, Contemporary Pop, and there’s even a little bit of Swing. The musi-cianship and vocals are perfect, there’s a nice balance of instrumental and vocal piec-es and “Carols” is a robust 57.5 minutes long (no skimpy wish sandwich here). Hard to pick favorites, since its all so good, but the opener–“Carol Of The Celts”–grabbed me when Còig shifted into high gear about 2 minutes in. And if “Swingle Jingle Bells” doesn’t put a smile on your face, I think there might be something wrong with you. Just sayin’.” – stubbyschristmas.com
