“Every year at Merlefest, one performer usually stands out as the buzz of the festival. This year that performer was clearly NoraJane Struthers and her amazing band, The Party Line. There is an honesty and an energy in her stage performances that is equally infectious and irresistible. She had the crowd jumping up and down in the hot sun on Sunday…she and Old Crow Medicine Show had the best energy of the festival.” — Charlotte Folk Society concert presenter
“Old time music continues to reinvent itself in the able hands of young artists like Nora Jane Struthers” — Tim O’Brien
