The approach Smith and Jones use in performing these songs… with an emphasis on simplicity and understatement. The results are sometimes breathtaking, always fresh, yet deeply immersed in the wellspring of old-time country music.

This is a great CD. It succeeds in combining different kinds of material – fiddle tunes, Carter Family and other country-sourced songs, original songs, British background ballads – into one whole that is a pleasure to listen to over and over again.

MAVERICK – The New Voice Of Country Music…
Smith and Jones were to these ears the day’s most outstanding act

The vocal and instrumental delicacy on this collection is haunting…very appealing.

Moving Lightly Through This World shows how a couple of talented multi-instrumentalists can breath some new life into this simple and quaint, yet powerful music. They have an authentic rural sound that celebrates yesteryear, and their songs elicit nostalgic images or give us inspirational messages that simply make us feel good.
