Duncan McFarlane

'Classy English Folk Guitar, eminently listenable vocals and great songs, both traditional and contemporary' (Mike Raven)
'Duncan's a punchy guitarist in the 'English folk' style and offers a set about equally split between his own songs, other people's and traditional'
'Duncan has an obvious feel for the tradition and a deep-rooted belief that it has a place in the current folk scene,
aspects which he puts across with lively showmanship. 'His own songs show a canny grasp of, and response to, the tradition, while his intrinsic seriousness of intent and approach is often laced with a healthy irreverence that happens to be hugely entertaining'
(Living Tradition) 

....and the Duncan McFarlane Band...

             ‘Absolutely great; The Duncan McFarlane Band CD ‘All Rogues & Villains’ is chock full of great stuff, really powerful playing and singing.
                                                                                                              – Mike Harding, BBC Radio Two, Folk & Roots Show

'Essentially solid, energetic English electric folk, full of pumping riffs and loads of energy'
'Robust folk-rock - reels, jigs and stout songs, well-executed and infectiously lively'
'It’s nice to find a folk-rock band that understands both folk AND rock and knows how to draw on one without diluting the other'
'The world can always use more good English folk-rock and this is loud, fast music, based on the rhythms of English country dance music with sharp-edged electric guitar leads, electric fiddle, and gutsy, gritty singing'
(quotes from fRoots, the Yorkshire Evening Post, Dirty Linen (USA), Shreds & Patches)
