"A spirited spokesman of a vigorous Scots folk tradition that is unabashed in its expression of patriotism and attachment to the homeland."
Irish Echo NY
Describes Grant-Adams as "a balladeer in the tradition of Alex Campbell, Liam Clancy & Tommy Makem."
Richard Van Kleek
"Any performance by a musician with Colin Grant-Adams, artistic credentials, no matter the venue, implicitly educates and increases public understanding of our own cultural heritage and the passing of tradition from one generation to the next, and from one region of the world to another."
"Most artistic institutions, including the Kentucky Center for the Arts, would be hard-pressed to fulfill their mandate to enlighten the public by showcasing a diversity of arts without excellent acts such as Colin."
