Some short takes on Slim Panatella & the Mellow Virginians . . .

‘An aural orgy of dazzling musicianship.’
The Independent

‘Slicker than the Torey-Canyon, hotter than a peppered sprout
and absolutely brill.’
The Living Tradition

‘An absolutely magnificent set of largely American country / old time / blues that is so melody-rich you would honestly think it was going out of fashion.’

Rock ‘n’ Reel

‘Smoking fretboards! This world-class collective on mandolin, violin and bass will light up your evening with an addictive blend of 30’s, 40’s and 50’s jazz, swing, ragtime, country blues and originals. The band features composer, wit, fiddler and guitarist Simon Mayor, three time UK banjo champion Richard Collins, and sublime English folk vocalist Hilary James, who is also a mean guitar and mandobass player.’
