Blackbird from the Willow Sings
"Chad and Shawn’s understanding of traditional music is reflected not only in their arrangements of the traditional pieces but their application of the style to Shawn’s original compositions. My favorite is “Changeling,” in which we hear the smooth, storytelling-like voice of Shawn accompanied by Chad’s masterful work on the wire-strung harp. If one compared this song to a book, Shawn’s lyrics would flow smoothly from the page amidst Chad’s expressive and well-illustrated artwork painted with his self-built 18th century design harp. Equally as pleasing is Shawn’s 'We’ve Done Well.'"
-- Folk Harp Journal
“Chad McAnally and Shawn McBurnie have pulled off an all-too-rarely accomplished feat with the release of Blackbird from the Willow Sings: they have successfully blended the new and the traditional. Neither stale remakes nor pandering pop approaches can be found here. Aided by Rumgumption bandmate and guitarist Brian Barnes, both musicians have infused exciting lyrical and instrumental takes within a dizzying array of material reflective of Celtic/English styles. Dance, lyricism and balladry are all given the royal treatment by a world class ensemble.”
– Kevin O'Connor, KBEM-FM music director
"Music and song, poetic and deep, ancient and modern, beautifully recorded and performed impeccably, Shawn's warm tones and Chad's virtuoso harp artistry seem to reverberate down the dark tunnel of the ages."

"Your new album is transcendent. I love it, I've been listening to it repeatedly..."
- Gerard-Jean Boissy, Wild Sound Studios
"Congratulations for making this significant contribution to the Gaelic harp world."
- Ann Heymann
"I found myself enchanted by the song Clover Wine. I haven’t heard anything that knocked me over like that since the very first time I heard Ian Anderson sing Songs from the Wood."
