WHAT FOLKS SAY ABOUT FOUR SHILLINGS SHORT
"Eclectic and unpredictable are apt descriptions of this beguiling duo. Their repertoire joins together traditional Celtic tunes, Indian ragas and American mountain music into an intoxicating mash. Through their many albums and constant touring, they've become known for thwarting listeners expectations and finding common ground in genres not often associated with one another." (Connect Savannah, Savannah GA)
"The delightfully surprising collection of songs and sounds this husband/wife act create, stretch the limits of Celtic and Folk music by stirring in generous amounts of Indian Ragas and Medieval flavorings via some of the tastiest sitar playing this side of Ravi Shankar." (Valpariso Times, IN)
"Their music is a global potpourri." (New Times, Miami FL)
