‘To see them play live is to witness an explosion of notes, melody, and song, and an explosive and happy connection among musicians and audience’. – Folkwax
‘Le Vent had enough virtuosity and spirit to make its four musicians sound like 40 at times, and tackles Scot, Irish or French material with equal authority’. – The Boston Herald
