"Mike's voice is amoung the most powerful and expressive I've heard. He makes the old songs new. There's a harp track on "Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier" which will haunt you forever. "We Danced to an Old Fashioned Tune" will give the dance crowd a new tune to waltz to. This CD is a superb example of the voice being the best musical instrument."


From "The Cornstalk Gazette", the publication of The Folk Federation of New South Wales, Inc., Australia, April,1998, by Sam Hilt.


{Note: Sam Hilt is an American who served with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Vietnam, immigrated to Australia after the war and has become a citizen of that country.
