Review

"When I first heard Mad Agnes I knew instantly these were special people with a special act. Musically, emotionally and spiritually they ticked all the right boxes. When I finally got to meet them, my suspicions were confirmed. They are lovely people making lovely music that reaches out and grabs you."
Simon Nicol - Fairport Convention, Chipping Norton '07

"Dazzling harmonies, superb arrangements, terrific instrumental virtuosity, brilliant original songs and fine treatments of other material... there really aren't enough superlatives to describe one of the best evenings I've seen in the many years I have been involved in the Folk scene."

Who's Mad Agnes?

“Masters of intricate, dynamic arrangement and precise polyphonic vocals, the group performs with a sense of fun – deceptive ease...one of the most capable and entertaining ensembles on the folk circuit today.”
Linda J. Morris, Dirty Linen------->READ REVIEW
"A thorough hearing of the album leaves the listener with the feeling one might get from reading an eloquent autobiography or reverent book of poetry, so literate and carefully crafted is their music. They bring not only the tools of music and language to their craft, but also psychology, spirituality, technology and love."
Laura Sue Wilansky, the Silver Nightingale

Review

“Their harmonies were extraordinary and tight, their attack was nothing less than fierce, their voices were wonderful and the instrumental work was terrific... precision that was never at the cost of passion. I'm not entirely sure it's folk music, but I do know it’s sensational.”
Richard Walton, Stone Soup Coffeehouse

“If you’ve been struggling to find a link back to that addictive sound of progressive/alternative folk groups like Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention and Renaissance, listen up...Mad Agnes recreates with authenticity many of the musical qualities that adored us to those aforementioned groups. It’s definitely magic.”
Robert A. Lindquist, Singer ------->READ REVIEW

Review
“…from witty to wildly innovative, there seems nothing out there like Mad Agnes, and certainly nothing like it in the folk world. A fusion of folk, pop and classical contrapuntal harmonies – contemporary and yet also timeless – sort of Paul Simon meets Bach, as sung by the Bitching Babes.”
