CD Reviews

One of the last great true Scottish bands
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had the pleasure to see Silly Wizard in concert many years ago, and I still get choked to hear their music. If you've never heard their music, then you've never truly heard the music of my country. The music of SW is deeply rooted in tradition, though a fair bit of it is new music written by the band. It's great music by great musicians. You'd have to come to Scotland to here anything like it. So if you can't come right now give it a listen."
SW rules
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music of Silly Wizard is like nothing you've heard before, even though it springs from a long tradition of Scottish country music. From songs about the English invasion of their land, to songs about love and friendship, Silly Wizard tells the story of Scotland one beautiful song at a time. It also contains some of the best jigs you will ever hear. With a sprinkling of modern instruments to keep the music from getting stale and with Andy Stewarts incredible voice, Silly Wizard has all the ingredients to make great music."
There must be a SW revival going on
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I used to listen to this band years back but I lost my whole music collection in a fire and I'm still trying to find stuff. All of a sudden I start seeing SW CDs all over the place and friends are telling me "you've got to have this band!" What happened? Where they on TV or something? Anyway I just re-purchased their whole catalouge and picked up some new stuff Andy Steward did since I lost my stuff. I loved their music and I can't wait to hear it again!"
