"Caroline Wigmore’s gorgeous-sounding take on the Washington Irving tale … a lush blend of folk, bluegrass, and gospel to savor"
"stunning orchestrations throughout and the music is very clever … the recording is produced to a very high standard … original and authentic"
"a deliciously original piece of musical theatre, in every sense of the word … Rachel Kurtz is a one of the highlights of the album … ‘Susanna’ is a beautifully moving song … If you like ‘Once’ or ‘The Lord of the Rings Musical’, you will almost certainly like Van Winkle … a very strong offering from SimG and ultimately a feel good production"
The Public Reviews
"a well recorded release and extremely well orchestrated … . 'Watching The Door' is a beautiful ballad and well delivered … 'Take A Drink’ invokes a great atmosphere … the accompanying booklet is very informative, necessary for a concept album. I admire SimG not only for the quality of their releases, but also for the diverse nature of the material."
