The Music Critics say:

"Marty's songs are simple in structure but rich in melody and richer yet in content. A real treat." Calgary Herald.

" Lady in Green (is) one of the most beautiful tunes I've heard."  Folk on Tap Magazine, Waterlooville, England.

If people are unsure of what good well written contemporary folk music sounds like, this record (Let the River Run)  is a must. I've been waiting to hear music like this for years." Willie P. Bennett
