…a force of nature ***** (5 STARS) The Scotsman

He has created his own unique way of playing and is finding great emotional depth in his native Scottish Music. Ryan Young is an up and coming musician who is gaining more and more well deserved recognition. I feel that he has the potential to make a very significant contribution to the Scottish tradition. – Martin Hayes

‘…Young’s playing is so richly expressive, channelling such deep emotion, that it feels like a dramatic performance in a theatre…one feels that here we have a potential heir to Duncan Chisholm for sheer emotional intensity.  It’s a remarkably mature debut album from one so young.’ – Paul Matheson, Folk Roots 2017
