"....This music is contemplative, stealthy and shimmeringly sublime. You’ll never play it when your friends come for dinner. You’ll flick the satnav off and drive the long way round. You’ll park further away and you will sit outside, willing it not to end. You will indulge in this album again and again. You will have learned how to listen.
- Lesley-Ann Jones
(see full review of 2018 release "Where Birdsong Meets Aeroplane" here:
“…..and Barry is never far from magnificent as he threads his improvisation through the sustained ending of The Lighthouse. They cheered him last night. They cheer him most nights. He touches people. I like that.”
Lucas Maybe -Bournemouth Echo-Newsquest Media Group
"....created something spine-shiveringly beautiful."
Jo Davison - Sheffield Star
"....Barry Wickens has it sounding truly smooth and sexy even. I’m not the only one who thinks so as, at one point in the set, a particularly frantic and dextrous spell of soloing draws a standing ovation from the crowd. “He’s good isn’t he?” quips Harley, adding “Not that good!” as the applause shows no sign of abating."
-New York Johnny
..... when Barry Wickens takes his violin solo the song shifts into a higher galaxy altogether – and one very close to musical heaven!
Review of Bonn show - John Hurd
...solos particualarly from Wickens, were blissful.
Alan Cooper- Portsmouth Evening News
“....a stupendous exhibition in virtuoso violin by Barry Wickens (so good he does it twice at Harley’s bidding).”
At Glastonbury Festival - Karen Morrison
