“This Vermont band embodies all the beauty of American roots music.” 
– Le Devoir, QC, CAN

“Some seriously stellar three-part harmony… a sobering mix of pragmatism and artistry… Pete’s Posse is a well-oiled machine: a three-man operation, they make music fit for a 10-piece band. (The Posse) represents what’s best about Vermont: reverence for the old, respect for the new and the ability to find a balance.” 
– Jordan Adams, Seven Days Magazine, Burlington VT

“One of the best trios I’ve seen in a long time!” 
– Éric Beaudry, musician, De Temps Antan

“This is an album of tradition mixed with innovation – “The Conversation” is wide ranging and inclusive. The understanding to build on the foundation of musical heritage coupled with the freedom to reflect its depths through outright invention and creation – that’s what you get.”
– Tom Franks, Folkwords, UK

“…(a) kaleidoscope of sounds and styles with equal parts amiability and energy… crossing genres sometimes within one song or tune set, devising thoughtful, elaborate arrangements, and adding their own compositions, which fit snugly into the mix.” 
– Sean Smith, The Boston Irish Reporter

“Pete’s Posse… not only an A-list contra dance band, but also as a world-class concert act.”
– Jamie Platt, sound engineer, Dancing Planet Productions, Washington DC
