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. ” - Joseph Duperreault
