PRESS REVIEWS
A selection of short takes on The Musical Mystery Tour series:

‘Splendid musical fun!’ The Daily Telegraph

‘Unnerving instrumental ability… ingenious, witty and hypnotic stories that they put to music… an absolute delight for audiences of all ages.’
Rock ‘n’ Reel

‘James and Mayor have the ability to write songs that appeal to children and to the child within adults without ever sounding childish. They do not oversimplify things, but trust their audience to be able to pick up on clever musical passages and word games in the lyrics.’
Rambles

‘Had my kids dancing and singing and asking for repeated plays… Get it, and have a box of Kleenex standing by: it’s the best tonic in a very long time.’
Folk On Tap

‘Cannot fail to delight either the youngest listener or the most jaded palate… total absence of condescension.’
fRoots

‘Outstanding songsmiths and instrumentalists, who oddly enough, have chosen to work in the arena of children’s music… it takes real skill to produce such a well-conceived, varied, and superbly performed collection – but it takes an act of God to appeal to middle-schoolers!’
Dirty Linen (USA)
