CLAUDIA SCHWAB QUARTET
"hypnotically blended voices, accordion, fiddle, bass guitar and restrained percussion creating beautiful, multi-layered atmospherics. [...]
They were restless, contemplative, beautiful. The closest comparison,
in the folk world at least, would be Lau, and that is high praise indeed"
(Gavin McNamara, Downend Folk Club)
