What others have said:
The Dunwell Brothers Band encompasses everything that is good in music, from their insightful and poetic lyrics to the beautifully crafted arrangements of their songs. – Saying that gives some indication of the pedigree of the musicians involved with this out- standingly refreshing band.
“Anyone that’s seen them has just been ‘Oh My God!’ They’re mind boggling! The quality of the songs, the quality of the playing, the quality of the vocals, the harmonies. Man, they’re like Mumford And Sons times 10
February 2011 saw their first visit to the United States, where they received a rapturous response at the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis. Louis Meyers, director of Folk Alliance described them as “Mind Blowing”. They also played to a capacity crowd at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe.
