“…they approach the idea of musicianship with a zeal that lands them on a wholly different plane than the average band… The Polyjesters are troubadours in the truest sense; they make music that draws people together, with a community feel that it seems only folk music is able to capture.” ~ Nick Winnick, BeatRoute Magazine
