Reviews of Taggart & Wright

Now we're a bit biased as to how great Taggart & Wright are, so here are what a few other reviewers thought of them after their performances.

"...there was an afternoon performance by the exceptional Taggart & Wright who mix song and humour to great effect. "
Middlewich Winter Warmer 2003

"Taggart & Wright also made their debut at the Chester Festival to delight the audience with their hamonies. They met for the first time a couple of years ago, at Tuesday's Ship Victory Jam nights in Chester and immediately struck up a partnership. I still think they ought to be called Anne 'n' Angie. Thanks, you two, I really enjoyed your set." Colin Matthews, Chester Festival 2001, Folk Orbit

"Taggart & Wright came to the attention of this writer several years ago... and I remember being impressed by both as performers, both in terms of the quality of their singing and their presentation... the result was both original and stimulating. They sing beautifully, their gentle voices perfectly compliment each other and their subtle guitar arrangements both support and enhance the songs without distracting from the story being told. At times their playing reminds me of the sort of feel classic bands like Pentangle and Fotheringay used to achieve to such great effect. Classic is actually a good term to describe the sound produced by this accomplished duo." Nick Mitchell, Chester Folk Festival 2001

Market Drayton Festival 2001
"...the scintillating unaccompanied close harmonies of Taggart & Wright."
Mike Raven,

"A fabulous CD of mainly traditional music." syfolk - new releases

"Taggart & Wright,,, excellent a capella numbers and a few laughs. A very polished performance." Chester Festival 2000

In a review of Maddy Prior and the Girls
"Rick Kemp's Deep In The Darkest Night rounded things off neatly, following a rendition of Cyril Tawney's Grey Funnel Line that, while more than acceptable, didn't quite make use of the inherent harmonic possibilities (I can't forget the sublime Taggart & Wright version, I suppose!)." David Kidman NetRythms
Also by David, on the Cleackheaton Festival, 2002
"Taggart and Wright, from Chester, provided some glorious unaccompanied harmonies, notably in the informal settings of the singarounds"
and at The Warwick Festival, 2002
"the scintillating Women's Song session (Anne Taggart and Angie Wright sparring with Ellen Mitchell and Patti Reid)" both in another part of NetRythms

"I think it was Ralph McTell who said good duos were made in heaven and don't just happen. After listening to Anne and Angie I believe this to be true... This is their first album, I don't think it will be their last." Pete Massey, of the Little Room Studio.
