"...one of the strongest Irish American duos out there!  Great vocals, great Instrumentals. We love this Pair!"

BILL MARGESON, Live Ireland - Irish American News

 

"the Finest Voice emerging in Irish Music Today..."

ENOCH DOYLE JEETER - Promoter, NE Louisianna Celtic Festival

 

"A Jeweled Performance"

"Siusan and Zig are a Remarkable Duo.  The intricate but never intrusive Wizardry of Zig Zeitler and his occassional excursions in Cajun and Zydeco Provides the Soul of their music and will bring a smile of Appreciation to your face.  But for me, as a singer, the heart of this duo is Siusan O'Rourke.  Her Voice is somewhere between Margaret Barry and Dolores Keane, strong, with a timbre the will warm the coldest heart.  She moves easily from traditional Irish Songs, to American Songs both Sacred and Secular. As a writer shes is among the best I have recently heard.  Listen to "Another Day" and walk away with images of Katrina's destruction as a metaphor for cancer filling your mind.  Listen to the beauty of "Thread of the Weave" and you will be moved as by few other new songs.  Here is a powerful new Voice in Irish and Folk Music. Together, Siusan and Zig form another "overnight" success who have worked on perfecting their Craft for years!                                                                                                                     Beir bua Siusan and Zig"
