Some Quotes of Praise

“More like a sweet old-time duo that a strict bluegrass act, the Gordon’s sing with such open-hearted honesty and pick with such crystalline purity that you’d have to be made of steel to resist ‘em. I have a feeling this album is going to become a household fave immediately. My Discovery Award goes to one such act, The Gordons. I like ‘em for the same reason I like the Carter Family, simplicity and purity.” – Robert K. Oerrmann

“With their warm, glowing vocal harmonies and impeccably clean and uncluttered picking, the Gordons bring to mind that most listenable of all bluegrass bands, the great Flatt & Scruggs. And, like Flatt & Scruggs, the Gordons are wide-ranging in their song selection. Above all these qualities, however, is the fidelity with which the group conjures up memories of a sweet rural world now long vanished.” – Edward Morris

“Purity, wholesomeness, earthiness, elegant simplicity, heart and soul. These are just a few of the words that hint at the depth, timelessness and haunting beauty of Gary and Roberta’s music, which is inexorably tied to their rural southern Illinois farm.” – Dave Higgs, Bluegrass Now magazine; WPLN Radio Nashville TN

“Everybody knows how I feel about The Gordons. They have done more for bluegrass than most anybody. Great songs. They never disappoint me.” – Gene Roberts, host of “Country Function and Bluegrass Junction”, KDHX

“They play what might be called “Sweetgrass”, a clean, forceful blend of old-time, Carter Family, country-gospel, and the relaxed, folky twang of ex-Byrds Chris Hillman and Gene Clark.” – Michael Shannon, journalist for the Charleston Gazette

“Like fine wine, the music of The Gordons just gets better with age.” – Keith Dudding, KDHX

“It was refreshing to hear music of such originality and quality for a change.” – WOUI-FM in Chicago, IL
