"Brett Ridgeway's music has a gentle, undulating rhythmic flow, and texture that is irresistible."

"It is folk music strongly connected to the folk roots and traditions, but it has another dimension altogether: something very enchanting in a subtle way. The rustic, primitive sound of his gourd banjo will ground you, but you'll hear something of the mystic here too. 

Brett's simple, straightforward mountain dulcimer style has just the perfect amount of rhythmic punch and vitality to keep you tapping your foot, and his hammered dulcimer playing is captivating: it is fun to just let this music wash over you. 

There's something very universal in Brett's music. I was watching the audience during one of his recent concerts and they were all so relaxed and entranced! Brett plays like he has nothing to prove. His music is happy to just "be" -- yet there is plenty of heart and soul in the music as well."  ~ Jerry Rockwell
