THE WORD ON THE STREET
"...one of the strongest Irish American duos out there! Great vocals, great Instrumentals. We love this Pair! "
BILL MARGESON, Live Ireland - Irish American News
"the Finest Voice emerging in Irish Music Today..." ENOCH DOYLE JEETER - Promoter, NE Louisianna Celtic Festival
"A Jeweled Performance Siusan and Zig are a Remarkable Duo. The intricate but never intrusive Wizardry of Zig Zeitler and his occassional excursions in Cajun and Zydeco Provides the Soul of their music and will bring a smile of Appreciation to your face. But for me, as a singer, the heart of this duo is Siusan O'Rourke. Her Voice is somewhere between Margaret Barry and Dolores Keane, strong, with a timbre the will warm the coldest heart. She moves easily from traditional Irish Songs, to American Songs both Sacred and Secular. As a writer shes is among the best I have recently heard. Listen to "Another Day" and walk away with images of Katrina's destruction as a metaphor for cancer filling your mind. Listen to the beauty of "Thread of the Weave" and you will be moved as by few other new songs. Here is a powerful new Voice in Irish and Folk Music. Together, Siusan and Zig form another "overnight" success who have worked on perfecting their Craft for years! Beir bua Siusan and Zig"
