“Shooglenifty continue to whip up a frenzy in performance, and never fail to innovate in the studio. With The Untied Knot they continue to blaze their particular, spectacular trail and give every indication that the journey is set to continue”

Acoustic Magazine

“It says much for their creativity that they’re still coming up with an album like this – one that transforms jaded preconceptions and dares the listener to yawn at this being ‘just another Celtic band’ … Beautiful inspired music”

Acoustic Magazine
Oz Hardwick

“This is a Shooglenifty album, and delivers – by the bucketload – everything that has made the band one of the most highly regarded folk acts to emerge from Scotland in the last quarter-century”
