PRESS QUOTES

"There’s enough swing and twang to set your feet moving involuntarily and enough soul and lament to make you want to grab a beer to cry into, but the joy these three bring to the stage will leave those lyrics two-stepping through your mind long after they’ve left the stage- Canmore Folk Music Festival
 
"The Trio are a tight fighting unit onstage, adept at near telepathic instrumental interplay and able to draw on a formidable list of far-flung originals and cover songs."        Eric Volmers, Penguin Eggs

I turned my head for a second, and a new generation of songwriters popped up in Calgary, shockingly professional and prolific, securing weekly residencies at top venues and the best players in town to accompany them.T. Buckley is one of those songwriters. In a matter of a few years, he has built a solid fan base in the city [and]  toured across the country..."                                              Gillian Turnbull, No Depresion Magazine
"It’s not hard to see why these gentlemen are in such high demand... The threesome leaves nothing behind as they perform, each putting theirshoulders into the wind and ultimately playing off each other with ease...If you haven’t already become a convert, you owe it to yourself to find these guys in their regular Calgary haunts."                       Dan St. Yves, Calgary Herald
