“I've heard quite a lot of old-time fiddle and banjo playing, trust me, but I've never heard it like this... played at break-neck speeds, Aaron's fiddle whipping around tight corners like a high-end sports car... It's like watching Bach hopped up on speed, composing kickass barn dance tunes in Appalachia... [Aaron is] a player you need to watch.” -No Depression

“So THAT'S what you meant by pedestrian fiddle music!!! I'm listening to Wild Hog and it's my favorite record I've heard in a long time by a long shot. Well done.

“Aaron is blinding and probably the most perfect exponent of fiddling I've witnessed live (and I've witnessed a few). Others have their niches where they excel but Aaron's range and dexterity is quite awesome.

“Fiddlin' and banjoin' genius Aaron Jonah Lewis: multiple award-winning fiddler, banjo player extraordinaire, Aaron is well known for taking audiences at concerts and festivals by storm both here in the UK and in the USA...

All that, then in addition, charisma, pure creativity, and SOUL.” -Charlie Hardie, Willesden Folk Union
