"Attention folk fans! Prepare to let some Hadrian’s Union into your life if you want a treat. This is a real whirligig of a release featuring a dynamic mix of reels, jigs and waltzes, and all knocked out with no little vim and plenty of quirky charm. At times they bring to mind the punky attitude of the Pogues, at others they seem to be fired by the prog/folk of Yorkshire’s Michael Chapman, but whatever they’re playing the five-piece dovetail quite beautifully for a release that is as stirring as a nip of whiskey on a cold winter’s night."

"Never thought I could enjoy folk music until I heard Hadrians Union, Fantastic musicians and I love Stew Simpson's Vocals. Songs are well written and cover a good spectrum of subjects and Emotions."
Well this is just lovely. Hadrian’s Union are a Carlisle based duo who make the most melodious kind of folk music; the stuff which is sure to set even the most steadfast toe a-tappin’. Utilising a guitar and violin combo to fine effect, the pair weave many a tale and put plenty of passion behind it, too, making for an utterly compelling listen. Seek them out"
Trapped in time
"The feedback from our members has been very positive. What an interesting, refreshing and entertaining evening we had. Hadrians Union are very talented both musically and in the material they produce, much of it having been written and arranged by themselves. They were different but excellent. Two nice guys as well. We will certainly have them back again."
