- Atmospheric and evocative performances
. . . a formidable live act
- The sound of Blueflint is defined by the sublime close harmonies of Deborah Arnott and Clare Neilson whose voices, both ethereal and warm, interweave in ballads and songs of eerie melancholy and heartfelt charm.
- The Edinburgh-based five-piece band intertwine banjos, fiddle, double-bass and drums to accompany the singers in beautifully-crafted songs, swooping easily from the dark underbelly of folk to buoyant Americana-tinged ballads.
- Blueflint successfully thwart attempts at musical pigeonholing; their fresh and original sound refuses to sit squarely in any one genre, bringing an unexpected twist to the banjo sound and gaining them fans from across the musical spectrum.
