"Their outstanding performance...took our breath away. If you enjoy Celtic music this is a must"
Cambridge Folk Club, Sep 2003

"In particular I'll keep an eye on the incredible combination of Celtic harp and uilleann pipes from Harriet Earis and Colman Connolly. There was more energy in their set than you'd see from The Darkness (I imagine)."

"Traditional Irish Music at its Best" – (describing a Luasca performance in Coventry Cathedral to open the festival)

"A fantastic hit at the Easter Miskin Folk Festival and winners of the Harry Prigg Trophy" 
Llantrisant Folk Club, April 2003

"For openers, Luasca (say 'Looska'), comprising Pontrhydfendigaid's own Harriet Earis on harp and Colman Connolly on flute and uilleann pipes, were an absolute delight. Harriet's harp technique extends way beyond the prim style that we've perhaps learned to expect with a harp...hers is an altogether different class of playing, with a rhythmic flair and melodic sense of adventure that's genuinely funky - not a word you'd normally associate with the instrument. Her clearly-expressed delight in her craft, as she moves as one with her harp, is really infectious. Factor in the equally impressive talents of Colman, the empathy of the ensemble playing, and the cleverly crafted programming of their sets into pairs and trios of tunes that shift effortlessly from one to another (from 'Gravel Walk' into 'Hurdle Race', from 'They Stole My Wife From Me Yesterday' into 'The Blacksmith') and you have an instrumental folk duo of major status. Everyone was completely charmed by Luasca and it made us realise how lucky we are that they're right on the doorstep - you can rest assured that they will be back, and next time we'll give them a much longer set."
