'Adrian Wilson’s bright yet supple tones were matched by warmth from Tim Horton on the piano'.
'Wilson’s wailing cadenza-like passage was answered with ... impassioned playing from the strings'.
'A warm yet suitably introspective performance'.
'The spirit was infectious, with Wilson keeping them on the straight and narrow of the jig with precise articulation'.
