“Our live “Folkstage” performers were The Malvinas (Beth Cahill, Gina Forsyth, Lisa Markely) on one of their rare reunion tours. Each of these artists comes from a musical background totally different from the others, but when they get together the result is a magical melding of styles with great harmonies and picking. They also do a superb job interpreting covers. The Malvinas certainly were a hit with our full capacity studio audience.” – Rich Warren

“Over the years, we have watched The Malvinas evolve from already fine musicians into masters of their instruments and voices with an egoless passion channeled in service to the song. On their third album, God Bless the Grass, we hear musicians with something to say and the skill to deliver a message without losing the music’s essential joy.” -Alan Gann

“These women take no prisoners!” -Dirty Linen Magazine

“You’ll find their enthusiasm and songs infectious.” -Sing Out! Magazine

And from the man who listened the closest:

“Those lush harmonies and feisty folk tunes pouring out of here are The Malvinas!”
