"I'm standing at the side of the stage of a new theater in the recently established Celebrity Centre in Los Angeles. A lone figure is on stage telling a story. The audience is transfixed. My attention is rivetted on the actor speaking with a western drawl. He is painting pictures of a dusty desert with stampeding cattle and frozen jack rabbits where time has stopped. All too soon the pictures melt to form a final ending to this mystical yarn and I am back at the side of the stage, changed forever. I have been touched by the storyteller." - Geoff Levin

"Celestial Navigations: ICE Chapter III is a great collection of stories....which continues the rich tradition of the first two installments. The fusion of music and story-telling is in top form on this CD. War Babies, Rock and Roll are great tracks...the narratives and music paint a great picture...perfect for listening on a long commute....The track ICE is haunting.... the music and script will transport you to a bleak and forbidding place.....don't be suprised if you get a chill listening to this track...."
Celestial Navigations III - Ice will warm you up!

"Being a fan of Celtic music, one day I wandered through the local B&N (sorry Amazon) and found this treasure hidden between utterly mediocre music. I took it home, slipped it into the CD Player and was immediately dismayed because it was storytelling. I nearly changed it into a coaster for my nightcap, but was disuaded by an act of caprice.
Six months later I was in my apartment looking at some moderately boring work that needed doing, and wondering how I was going to survive it when my roving eye caught this disk sticking out of the pile of unused CDs in the corner. For the fun of it, I put it on.
It didn't take long for me to realize what an error I had made half a year ago. The haunting title track takes your breath away. The Back Porch will tighten most throats with its beauty and simplicity. The bonus track (be warned) is randy, but hilarious. The prude in me (and I am quite the prude) couldn't decide whether to blush or belly-laugh. In between these three tracks are stories that will tickle your fancy, touch your heart, or stroke your funny bone. To be sure, I described this album to my boss as one performed by "Libertarian Rednecks." Whatever. Regardless, you will enjoy this marvelous treat. Pick it up today!"

"This is something a friend played for me on a tape in 1993.. I haven't heard it since then until now however, this work actually affected my life profoundly..How many times can you say that about a story? Thank god for the internet or I would have never found it again. The story "Back Porch" has inspired me through many "moments" of my life. The "Intervention" is so visual and humorous, It's very much like having a movie in your head..The music, especially in the last cut, is moving and brings these stories to life in a way that emerses me into the world in the story and never fully lets go!!"
