Press - What they say about The Durbervilles

"The Durbervilles track "Glory To The Few" from the current album "Alternative Route To All Destinations" is featured on the cover mount CD of Rock'n'Reel magazine Nov/Dec 2008 edition

Rock'n'Reel magazine

“Sparkling new CD from Batley based country folk group… I really loved this CD.”

“For me the outstanding tracks are The Queen’s Train …the superb Randell Avenue and the rousing Glory To The Few. If you are looking for reference points then the closest are the Oyster Band or the aforementioned Fairport. The difference is that the Durbervilles do not stick to the English Folk route but throw country and Cajun into the mix to make a glorious sound” 


"An album that visits most corners of roots music within a good time framework. Catch it for country, folk, Cajun and all stops to an old fashioned rock n roll mentality. The Durbervilles make intelligent music to party along with”

f Roots Magazine

“…consistently pleasing self compositions that blend country rock with the rootsy edge of Steve Earle & Lindisfarne and with a folkie's grasp of the instrumentals.”

Rock n Reel Magazine

“…truculent mythologizing folk-rock from Yorkshire…” 

Financial Times – Critic’s Choice.

“…instantly likeable foot tapping songs that wouldn’t sound out of place at any festival on the summer circuit”

Acoustic Magazine.

"(a)..feelgood collection of jaunty original numbers"

- BBC Radio 2 Music Club

“..their particular take on roots music from Cajun to country rock (is) informed by genuine folk sensibility and reinforced by considerable instrumental skill….don’t miss them.”

Living Tradition

“…witty and inventive…catch them now in their natural habitat. Before long they will get the attention they deserve and have to include the rest of the planet!”

Spiral Earth

“…takes the listener from Memphis to an English village green”

York Press

“ can almost imagine Richard Thompson on guitar”


"The Durbervilles are quite rightly a legend and an institution"
