Lovely Blueflint News

Hope you are all good and enjoying the first days of Spring!
We have lots of lovely Blueflint news for you!

Press Reviews: We are delighted with the response the press and folk at gigs have given to our new CD Maudy Tree. Here are a few:

R2: 4 stars **** "the musicianship is consistently excellent…Deborah Arnott and Clare Neilson..sing beautifully together and demonstrate an impressive range as songwriters.”

Folk and Roots: “… a triumphantly individual group-collective take on the twin traditions of old-timey folk and knowingly contemporary Scottish country music….a real discovery…one of my albums of the year.”

Scotland on Sunday: 4 Stars **** "Relaxed, assured and very attractive vocal harmony from Deborah Arnott and Clare Neilson...leads their crew further into mainstream acceptability and success."

The Herald: "This second album has ample evidence that their talent should be a lasting one, with both women contributing fine new songs to their catalogue...making the disc a sonic step forward."

fRoots: "..lyrically clever, musically immediate...Rich imagery and cleverly captured vignettes draw the listener winner."

Blueflint interview - Rock 'n' Reel: Look out for an interview with the band in the next issue of Rock 'n' Reel
