"The Harrow & The Harvest ... grabs the attention of a new generation." — NPR
"Welch ... at her haunting, heart-aching best." Washington Post
"These are rich guitar and banjo textures and harmonics that are almost orchestral in nature. ... The recorded sound here is everything you'd wish for on an album of acoustic instruments and vocals. It's artifact-free, harmonically and textually rich and complex and spatially three-dimensional. ... The QRP pressing is dead quiet too. (Note: the first pressing has sold out but do order now. It's worth the wait!)." — Music = 10/11; Sound = 10/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. Read the whole review here.
