"Despite the youth of its membership, Broadside Electric is Philadelphia's leading and longest-lived electric folk band. In their years together since 1990, this quintet has produced three CDs and is at the peak of its form, attracting critical praise and national attention. They have built a reputation for thoroughly original arrangements and painstaking research into traditional English, Celtic, and Eastern European music."

"This group has taken traditional music from many cultures and added their own style and a rock beat. The result is energetic, haunting, beautiful, and fun."

"If you like folk music, you'll probably like Broadside Electric. If you like Rock & Roll, you'll probably like Broadside Electric. If you like Irish ballads, you'll probably like Broadside Electric.

"This outrageously creative Philly-area Electric-folk band starts with a hodgepodge of musical traditions including Irish, British, Klezmer, Balkan, and American folk, filters them through a progressive-rock sensibility, and manages to push the results in unique and delightful new directions." - Mark Stewart

"Following in the footsteps of such bands as Fairport Convention, this quintet of young musicians takes traditional ballads and dance tunes, applies modern (and some old) instruments and musical approaches, and makes exciting music, all the while maintaining great respect for the source material. Their musical tools include guitars (acoustic and electric), fiddle, Chapman Stick, whistles, drums, dulcimer, and multiple part vocal harmonies." - The Folk Project
