"It's a long time since I heard somebody with such a great sense of rhythm and such sensitivity"

- Mike Harding

"Growing up myself in Kent I know that playing folk music is mostly a sole learning experience, I was at Broadstairs Folk Festival some years back on campsite and heard a sound you'd never hear unless a visiting band were perhaps having a session, it was box playing of a superb standard and from such a young man too! Will embodies all that is great about our folk traditions and on fiddle too!"

- Tim Edey
