“…Tal Naccarato plays old style ragtime and blues guitar after the fashion of such greats as Happy Traum and Dave Van Ronk. He delivers the classics of the folks like Reverend Gary Davis and Jorma Kaukonen, (and) …his own compositions in the same genre.” Mike Aggrarov, Troubadour Chairperson / The Folk Project
