"We welcomed Alana and her father Leigh for one of our Sunday in the Park concerts in July 2015. Beautiful sunny day, huge crowd in the park on lawn chairs, blankets, babies toddling and dogs wandering and fabulous upbeat music from Alana and Leigh. A beautiful day."

"Fiddler Alana Cline delighted our audience at Canada Day Celebrations at Mel Lastman Square, July 1, 2013. Her Celtic fiddling is exquisite, solo or accompanied by other musicians, I recommend her for any festival performance."

Natasha Emery, Supervisor, Cultural Events, City of Toronto

"Alana and Leigh Cline performed twice at Burlington Public Library's Central Branch: once in August, as part of our Lunchtime Summer Concert Series, and then again in late September, where they gave a talk on the history of Celtic music in Canada that included performance elements as part of Culture Days. Both times, Alana and Leigh drew strong crowds to the Library for programs that had not been done here before, and put on a strong presentation that was very well received by the audience. Alana and Leigh are both very engaging performers, and very easy and professional to work with. I was very happy with their performance and presentation, and would not hesitate to hire them again."

Craig Logue, Events Coordinator, Burlington Public Library
