“Banna de dha was a most delightful addition to the 2014 Savannah Scottish Games! Both Hazel and Tom are extremely talented musicians, and when they combine their forces, they give a performance unsurpassed by any duo that we have heard, and we have been the music committee for the Games for many years. They were both a pleasure to work with, run sound for, and listen to. Their music is both soulful and spritely, beautifully created with strings that compliment each other perfectly. They are a very professional duo, who we would love to have return to Savannah!” - Judy & Bob Williams, Savannah Scottish Games Committee
“Banna de dha were a wonderful addition to the CelticFest performer lineup, well received in performance, in workshops, and with the Saturday Ceili band. We anticipate hearing more of their fresh and vibrant interpretation of traditional Irish tunes at future festivals.” - Steve Payne, CelticFest Mississippi Co-Director and Performer Coordinator
“The duo Banna de dhá — Tom Morley on fiddle and Hazel Ketchum on guitar and vocals — opened the show for Solas with a crisp, self-assured forty minute set. Theirs is an intimate, immediately accessible take on the traditional roots sound. The reels, jigs, and ballads they played, set off by artfully simple arrangements, made their performance seem like you'd come in out of the chill night air only to discover a delightful ceili waiting for you in your own living room. A real treat." - Jon Santiago, Metronome Charleston
“We truly enjoyed the visit by Banna de dhá to our campus. Their concert provided students and community members with an intimate look at Irish music — the joy of its improvisatory nature and the intuitive communication required by its players. Their master class gave students insight into both Irish traditional music, and into the lives of professional musicians — particularly in the way Tom and Hazel move fluidly from the demands of one tradition into another, and the way music has led them on a path of ongoing discovery and challenge.” - Tracey E. W. Laird, Professor of Music and Chair, Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA
“…an album of forward-looking traditional music that seeks to reimagine some well known standards. It's a strong outing…impressive.” - Tony Lawless, Tradconnect.com
"Your CD 'Band of Two' is lovely! I played several tracks on my radio program ‘The Celtic Universe' recently and will play more on upcoming broadcasts. Cheers!" - Lyons Filmer, KWMR West Marin Community Radio.
