"Backyard Buskers deliver with aplomb, finesse and an infectious sense of energy." - Barnsley Folk Club

"[Backyard Buskers] just go from strength to strength... harmonies are great and musical arrangements tight....we're in for a good night when we have them up on stage." - Mansfield Folk Club

" Backyard Buskers (as well as sporting a fine line in hats and animal heads) added real quality to BAMfest 2013. Their harmonies are sublime, musicianship outstanding and their stage presence quirky and appealing. The audience loved them.....They'll be back next year. You should book them too." - BamFest 2013

"Energetic performances & beautiful three-part harmony draw a loyal following from around the region….. Expect Carter Family, Gillian Welch, Hazel Dickens, Johnny Cash, Neil Young & traditional songs from both sides of the Big Pond." - Tramlines 2012

"With a collective set list that runs the gamut from Folk and Traditional through Rock & Roll, the Great American Song Book and an increasing amount of Americana there is some debate over who is the best vocalist in the band….this is a group that can entertain, can play the big stage and are comfortable 'up close' with people dancing in front of them. None of their appeal is based upon a veneer - what you see are the individuals - what you hear is a band worth listening to." - Chesterfield Folk Club

"A superb repertoire of Mountain music and songs…always go down a storm…great vocals and musicianship" - Princess Royal Folk Club

"Brilliant harmony and some fantastic musicianship…….This is a band we are all going to hear a lot more from, and if you get a chance to see them in the South Yorkshire area it's well worth taking the time out" - Acoustic Rotherham
