The album quickly moves through a variety of clever arrangements from sensitive whistle harmonies to driving, high powered strings while the lyrical quality of the songs encapsulate a modern approach to song writing within the folk/traditional genre.
“This band is taking Irish music to a new place. Their music will touch people far beyond the realm of traditional music”
“Powerhouse quintet of traditional musicians with attitude…bringing drawing room grandeur and high spirits together”
“While there’s plenty of action and flamboyance in Slide’s music, The Flying Pig takes the Dervish/Bothy Band /De Dannan formula and turns it 360 degrees on its head successfully merging youthful arrogance and swagger with traditional expertise”
“Captivating onstage, and gracious off”
“Slide... the future of Irish Music”
