From the review by Tom Knapp at Rambles.net October, 2003 I can't emphasize enough how sweet Heidi's voice is. Besides excellent tone, she has great storytelling quality, very expressive. The band is no slouch at instrumentals either, and the album boasts several excellent instrumental tracks. I just love track 2 'Big J' which has an amblin swing pace and a perfect balance of instruments, swapping between Heidi's flute and Allen's fiddle. There is a wonderful relaxed feel to this band that I really enjoy. There are also a lot of interestin touches, percussion and other instrumentation that step outside the Celtic tradition and add a distinctiveness to the music without being blatently rock oriented or drawing on a specific ethnicity. Natterjack is a fine New England band that bears watching.' Duffy the Dancer by Allen Church Duffy was a dancer but no one ever knew No one but his daughters thought it something he would do They knew him as a sculptor with good hands for his trade People came from miles around to see the art he made At the end of every day when the work and the chores were done Duffy danced and his daughters played to the setting sun One daughter would accompany clapping hands and tapping feet The other played the fiddle to her sister's steady beat Hornpipe, waltz, polka, jig, anything they'd feel But the tune that Duffy loved the most was when they played the reel Their fingers they would fly so fast and soon they'd get the groove Duffy couldn't stop himself, his body had to move He would chug and skip and hop and slide across the floor And when his daughters had to stop he always wanted more At the end of every day when the work and the chores were done Duffy danced and his daughters played to the setting sun More he knew would turn to less the more his daughters grew And by and by he'd let them go the way we're meant to do Still the music moves him, he still hears it in the air And Duffy he still dances when no one else is there From Old Shoes by Allen Church And all the walks and all the streets, all the other socks and shoes they'd meet All the steps that they got to know, they took a chance on the heel and toe They learned to dance on the heel and toe They didn't always know when to leave, a little longer as long as we've Got something to talk about, we'll wag our tongues and pull our insoles out We'll wag our tongues and pull our insouls out They worked quite well way back when. Some day I'll wear shoes like that again. Please give us a listen and let us know what you think.....of the music, thanks. Here's one listener's comment: What can I say? If you like music, you should hear this band. They play well, sing great, create enchanting arrangements and have a thoughtful lyricist in Allen Church. Hop2it, their second CD, is enjoyable listening from start to finish with some stand out material that displays the band's unique sound including the spirited Duffy the Dancer, the reggae influenced Paddy, and the swinging, bluesy feeling of Blue Toads. Definately worth your attention.....
