Joseph Duperreault, Artistic Director, New Moon Folk Club, Edmonton, AB: Linda McRae and Doug Cox are masterful musicians in their own right but when you put them on stage together something magical happens. They layer their virtuosity into a powerful traditional folk sound that's harmonious, engaging and highly entertaining. Our audience left feeling they'd just experienced a singular display of folk music artistry at its finest.
Kevin Rose, The Dream Cafe, Penticton, BC: Doug Cox and Linda McRae succeed in providing top class musicianship, but more importantly they are able to create that much sought after element, genuine connection with everyone lucky enough to attend their performance.
Rod MacMillan, Entertainment Director, Vermilion Folk Club, AB: True music royalty with a set list that draws from their respect for folk traditions and their own original repertoire. They created an immediate relationship with our audience through their story telling. I would encourage everyone to bring them to a venue nearest you!
Ted Crouch, Acoustic Avenue Music, Salmon Arm, BC: Linda McRae and Doug Cox are well recognized and respected artists with successful solo careers.
