"We hosted Sally and The Hurts for a second time last
Saturday evening for an outdoor concert. The charisma, stage presence,
melodies, lyrics and unparalled musicianship illustrate why they draw
such a large loyal following to their performances.
The natural connectedness amongst the band members
takes their music to a higher level.
We're ready to have another show!!"

"If you are brave enough to wander just a little off the path and
experience folk music in its purest form,
spend a musical evening with Sally and The Hurts.
This group weaves creative lyrics that allow you in, ask you to stay,
and leave you with an experience that makes you feel
you have truly shared that moment with them.
The eclectic voicing of guitar, violin, and saw provide a backdrop
that is haunting and uncluttered. The lyrical depth provides a space to live
if only for a short while, and the combination of simplicity
and compelling content has left many of their songs in my head for days.
Whether they are making you laugh, cry, or feel emboldened,
they will affect you in a way that lasts."
- Tony Ridder -
"... music with agency, passion, and humanity that's perfect for the instrumentation...
Funny, compassionate, and wistful lyrics in harmony
alternate with captivating fiddle and saw solos.
Jamie Lee’s saw drifts above the guitar and fiddle,
simultaneously warm and mysterious.
Hurt's expressive fiddling feels like
youthful experiments that never go wrong.
Banter-filled performances are so relaxed
you'll feel like you're at a jam session with close friends."
