"Lamond's voice is pure and clear, infused with a stream of life experience that gives character to every song. Like the peat and the heather that gives the highland water its flavour."
-The Daily News

"Lamond remains the most innovative and exciting Celtic artist. She continues to fuse the ancient language and its beats with a modern interpretation that is all her own. The group vocals and rhythms reflect the origins of the songs, found in the daily rituals of women's work. Then, Lamond adds just that bit of modern influence to make these tunes alive in this day."
-New Brunswick Reader

"In every culture there are those who preserve the language, song and traditions. Mary Jane Lamond is one of those people. This is evident in her most recent CD, Storas (Gaelic meaning "a treasure"). This is exactly what our traditions are...they are our treasures."
-Celtic Connection
