"Appearing on a bill of world class artists, the Full Moon Ensemble, came, saw and conquered the hearts of the
Scottish people. These six talented musicians from Alabama, weave the fine threads of Celtic music into a tapestry
of passionate reels and nostalgic ballads. Occasionally we may fortunate to be invited into their magical world, if
offered, I urge you to accept their invitation -- they'll take your
breath away. HASTE YE BACK!!"

each and every audience member captive throughout our 3 day run! Whether intimate settings
such as a tea garden or romping crowds in the Highland Pub, each and every set created more
avid fans for the band here in Ontario!"

"The Full Moon Ensemble do not belie their heritage or forget their roots whether in far off Ireland
or nearby in Alabama. This is one of the most amazing bands in all of Celtic music!"

Chris Range
Celtic Grove Radio

"Rarely are my socks knocked off, but when I heard "Full Moon Ensemble"  perform their driving(and I mean driving)
jigs and reels, and beautiful vocals in their sensitively presented songs I knew I had heard a group
unlike any other on the American Celtic festival circuit. Composed of champion musicians
and gifted singers, this group of five has a great respect for Celtic presentation, while incorporating
and some exotic percussion. If they are ever in your town--see them!"

Charlie Zahm
Singer / Songwriter
Celtic & Maritime Music

"The Full Moon Ensemble compares with the best known artists of the Celtic genre,
like Altan, Capercaillie and Deanta!  From lovely ballads featuring the beautiful, clear voice of Allison King
and the Guitar work and tunings of Scooter Muse, to the upbeat reels featuring the fabulous fiddling of
Daniel Carwile, this band is loaded with talent!  Anyone who likes the best of the great celtic
genre will eventually find this band's cds deserving a place in their collection."
