“Thrillingly unclassifiable funk/folk/jam-band mash-up of Man’s Ruin” – Sue Wilson, Scotsman 

“Man’s Ruin did an amazing job of closing the 10th MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. They energised the whole room and had everyone on their feet dancing the night away. They’re a brilliant bunch of musicians and would be an amazing asset to any festival that want to finish their event on a high.”Simon Thoumire (Hands up for Trad) 

“OK, Man’s Ruin is hands-down the funkiest, smartest, most soulful mix of brilliant tunes and surprising ideas I’ve heard in decades. Honestly, this proves that you can put intelligence and way deep groove into the same pocket. don’t miss this! Really the ONLY thing I don’t like about this band is I’m not in it. Yet!”Steve Forman (James Taylor, Dave Matthews Band) 

“A rock legend in piper’s clothing. Immense tunes. Great groove and happening hair. What more could you want?”Corrina Hewat (Unusual  Suspects) 

“Music and comedy – the best of both worlds”Aidan O’Rourke (Lau)
