“A boundary breaking album of dance music that simultaneously celebrates and challenges the perception of the Welsh tradition.”
“A CD with its feet in what it knows and its head way up and out there”
“Most of the material is ‘Trad. Arr.’ but it isn’t ‘Trad. Arr.’ as we know it Jim; rather, whilst the fiddles, pipes and other ethnic instruments form the attack, the back line throbs and pulses with beats and electronics. Layer after layer of groove and reel build on one another… “ Simon Jones – Folk Roots.
“Catraeth gloriously throws caution to the wind as pibgorns, fiddles, hurdy-gurdy, electric guitars, pipes, keyboards, bombardes, fifteenth century galliards, readings from Under Milk Wood, loops and programmed grooves combine to create an irresistible force.” Dave Haslam – Rock and Reel
“WHAT an inspiration! … Moreover it’s a mouthwatering chance to madly, flailingly, bouncingly dance … It’s one hell of an album.” Mick Tems
