"There is nothing like good old-fashioned folk music to get the feet tappin’ and folks singin’ along! From the Isle of Skye to Alabama, to the Shenandoah River, to Lady Greensleeves herself we were most enjoyably entertained. ‘Time Ashore’ is a talented quartet. Andrew Thompson-Smith, the lead singer also entertained us with the history of the songs"
