AllMusic Review by

Twin hammered dulcimers lead the charge, and a sense of humor brings up the rear, resulting in an album that ranges from reverent performances of traditional music to cheerfully irreverent takes on the world -- one of the high points of the record occurs smack in the middle as the band launch into "Send Me to Glory In a Glad Bag," a paean to saving money on the funeral by popping the departed into a lawn bag or two and thence into the dumpster. Not just funny, Simple Gifts of the Blue Ridge are excellent performers too.
