American Record Guide, May/June 2014
These are all arrangements by the Apollo players. These are all dancey and effective settings. The Apollo settings are beautifully arranged and make enjoyable listening. Keep at it, boys and girls. You're doing a valuable service and making folk music come to life effectively. This is a recording to consider. Digital booklet, study scores, video, and more are on the computer.
