“Beggar’s Ride will touch your heart and mind with their haunting harmonies and sensitive songwriting. Their sound may remind you of the Indigo Girls or the introspective side of Crosby Stills & Nash. They’ve got the talent to have a long ride indeed, through the folk world and beyond.”-John Platt WFUV 90.7FM
