……Songs like "Pride of the Springfield Road" and "Step it out Mary" have been done before, but never with quite tho same sense of reconstruction devilement as attempted here. Shirlow´s original material like "Erin´s Isle" and "Rita Kilty" possess an urgency and spirit, rendering them both distincly honest aned refreshingly direct."

John O´Regan, Irish Music Magazine

……‘Their second album “Ear to the ground” proves their position as one of Germany’s hottest new Celtic bands. A trio with their feet in both traditional and contemporary idioms, their fresh exuberance allows for music that is both lively and refreshing. A subtle use of percussion, keyboards and flute add extra lustre while not distracting from Midnight Court’s own distinctive style. ‘Ear to the ground” is a treat for the ears and Celtic soul food of the finest order.”


……“The stars of the 1997 and 1998 St. Patrick's Day Celebration Festival are here in top form. Well known and unknown songs and tunes are presented in a fresh and lively manner. A good amount of guest musicians appear, among them flautist Brian O’Connor. With their swinging style Midnight Court manage, yet again, to pack the listener with enthusiasm.”
