The tradition is safe in the hands and hearts of these two exceptional players. Paying great respect to the keepers from whom they learned, Aaron and Emilia breathe new life into the repertoire. To play at this level and make it sound so effortless speaks volumes of their talent. You're left with a strong sense that they play for the love it... it's always about the tunes and they nail it!"

— Glen Tilley, Producer CBC Radio Music
