"A voice that is timeless and touching
- Charlie Gillett
"Her chosen songs, though mostly modern, have the haunted, incantatory feel of ancient ballads, rendered in a voice that is at once silvery clear and slightly throaty. Her apparently artless delivery gets to the emotional truth of this material in a way more sophisticated performers mights struggle to achieve for years."
- Daily Telegraph
"..her modest appearance is a reflection of her uncomplicated delivery. Her voice hasn’t got great emotional range. It doesn’t swoop or declaim so much as ride the melodies of the songs she sings, drenched in the saudade (yearning) born of a lifetime’s struggle for survival and acceptance, and it’s a voice that is both enchanting and moving."
