Opening act Marina Evans and headliner Hillary Reynolds and her band received an excellent review of their sold out concert at Braintree Folk on November 8, by music critic Jay Miller at the Patriot Ledger! An excerpt:

Rockport’s Marina Evans opened with a 45-minute set of her own tunes, and she managed to get a really warm and distinctive sound out of her acoustic guitar. Evans often utilized a wide dynamic range with her high-alto voice, going from whispery to wailing to good effect.  Her “Not Gonna Wait” injected some starkly poignant soul into the mix, while “California” was a wistful look back. Who wouldn’t like her “anti-social media” tune “Little Boxes,” with its gentle chiding of some of the more obsessed among us. Evans also has a nice swinging tempo to most of her tunes, and “How Many Miles” was an especially toe-tapping delight. And there was an undeniable beauty to her gentle, almost crystalline ballad “One Way or Another,” where her voice and guitar were superbly in synch.
