“You have to hand it to this guy, he is a very good harpman, either on chromatic or diatonic, and possesses an ‘out of left field,’ soulful voice, but his real strength lies in his songwriting. All the material is original, and his CD has a bunch of wry, witty and sometimes downright funny songs. McAllister’s songwriting is so clever, (‘Makeshift Molly’, ‘Suzie Goldigger’, ‘Duct Tape’) are perfect examples, and he is such a fine harp player I have to say that sheer listening pleasure is the result”
