“With a gentle charm
that has become his trademark,
the Guernsey Cove musician
sang songs, told stories,
and urged his audience to join in,
much to their delight and to his”

- Sally Cole,  Charlottetown Guardian

"He consistently brings 110 per cent
to the stage and is always thinking foremost

of giving the audience the quality show it deserves."

- Eddy Quinn, The Eastern Graphic
