A review from Mike Cooper in Froots magazine 2004.

  • A CD from some of Australia's best performers, The Wise Family Band from Margaret River in Western Australia go from strength to strength as the three daughters Ruth, Lucy and Rowena continue to grow musically as well as physically, Father Scott and mother Louisa bring them all together here for another selection of reels, rags, gospel, blues and traditional Scottish, English and Irish songs and tunes of the family kind, I recently heard someone say, "Look to your past to secure your future", It looks pretty secure down around the Wise country, I would say, Five voices in harmony, four fiddle players, guitar, mandolin, slide guitar. Lock your kids in their room and make 'em Iisten to this, I say.  www.slwise.com.au.
