What they're saying...

 "...encapsulates the modern Irish American experience...their mix of elegant ballads and rowdy pub songs is certainly among the best I have heard in recent years and they are almost certainly ready to give the big hitters of the Irish folk scene in America a run for their money."

-London Celtic Punks Web-Zine (Dec 27,2017)

"The Irish heartbeat cannot be found in the bottom of a pint of Guinness. It’s not revealed by a marching procession of politicians or via the aroma of boiled dinners; and it’s certainly not exemplified by a slew of stumbling locals clad in green costumes....It can be found in the stories and sounds of Ireland's music — and the members of South Buffalo’s Crikwater know it."
 -Michael Farrell - The Buffalo News

“Crikwater takes Buffalo by Storm : Crikwater was formed because they saw a need for young musicians in Buffalo to play traditional folk music...to be sure that style of music is carried on for generations to come...The boys from South Buffalo ... are thrilled with the response they’ve gotten throughout the Western New York community.” 
- Erin Collins - The Buffalo Irish Times
