Private Event, Cumberland, MD
Check out this review from Nick Noble, host of The Folk Revival on WICN (Worcester Public Radio)
"From the very first track, “I Want to Sing”, Andy & Judy’s newest album, This Road, grabs you in a joyous embrace and doesn’t let go! Opening with an original gospel-style number, replete with wonderful two-part harmonies, Judy Daigle’s powerful solo work, and some very impressive multiple instrumental work, it makes you want to sing and to hear more. The CD segues nicely into the title track: another Judy original in the spirit of countless “wandering” songs in the folk tradition and absolutely lovely.
This Road touches on a wide range of tried-and-true folk music themes, with songs of protest and reform, love songs, story songs, lullabies, and more. Eleven originals (three by Andy Daigle, eight by Judy) and a near-perfect cover of Vic Witherspoon’s “Cambridge Town.” (You can also be sure that I will be playing their “Fenway Through and Through” on my annual baseball show from now on).
You have to love Andy and Judy: they exemplify the long tradition of great folk duos and bring to every song a traditional folk sound. I confess that I am indeed a sucker for great harmony, and they deliver! Their voices blend beautifully, while their solo verses are spot-on. They play guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, washboard, shaker, and other percussion instruments. Ably abetted by John Zaia on bass, this Massachusetts duo puts a contemporary spin on a wide range of styles: folk, blues, bluegrass, and more. I highly recommend This Road: just start it up, kick back, and enjoy. Play it through a second time and you’ll be singing along. You know you want to sing!"
Here is an excerpt from a review from Bill Copeland Music News
"Andy and Judy offer up a lot sincerity and a lot of talent on this new album, This Road. One can appreciate their their thoughtfulness as well as their heartfelt vocals, gritty instrumentation, and a steady pluck that runs like a solid under current to every lyric and note sung and played".

" Andy & Judy put the fun back in folk music. In a style reminiscent of the classic hootenanny, the duo delights with original songs and playful stage banter on a surprising range of instruments, with engaging melodies that keep audiences smiling and singing along."
