“Not since the days I used to follow the early ‘acoustic’ Stockton’s Wing have I enjoyed an album that breathes life into traditional music without really trying.” —Pete Fyfe, Maverick Magazine
“An elegant small-ensemble recording. Some the best mandolin playing in Irish music.” —Dennis Cahill (guitar virtuoso, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill)
“They’ve created a work of art….And the songs are a delight. I love this stuff.” —Billy McComiskey (Irish accordion legend)
“As purveyors of Irish music go, Three Mile Stone are indisputably in the top bracket, and you’re seriously unlikely to come across a much more elegantly persuasive and genuinely uplifting small-ensemble record than their eponymous debut.” —The Living Tradition magazine
“…an excellent recording of Traditional Irish music and song….lovely playing and singing…a delightful recording.” —James Kelly (legendary Irish fiddler)

“This is purely excellent acoustic music by three monster players. Do yourself a favor and dig in to Three Mile Stone!”
—Dan Gabel, Acoustic Guitar magazine
Marla’s amazing mandolin playing sets the bar for all others; Erin’s fiddle practically glows from within, with a fire stoked by her passion and experience; and Richard’s guitar lays down a rhythmic foundation full of nuance and intricacy. There’s not a dull moment on Three Mile Stone. Fiddlefreak recommended!”
