    Media Reviews:

    "One of the giants of the 70’s Old Town folk scene that included John Prine and Steve Goodman, and still going strong…” 
    Greg KotThe Chicago Tribune

    " A folk-ballad-pop-blues singer of enormous range, charm, and charisma."
    John RockwellThe New York Times

      “ An evening with Bonnie Koloc is something very special, indeed…Music just pours out of her soul, and wrapped her rapt audience in splendor…

     "Her voice is a veritable orchestra-reedy in her mid tones, flutelike popping up to the stratosphere, mellowed by cello warmth in her lower register, she even mimics a horn affecting haunting slides over the high notes like a howling horn…

     “Don Stille is a pianist of extraordinary artistry and technique, buoying Koloc’s vocals with fascinating rhythms ranging from boogie and blues to sweet, twinkling touches and classical lines.”
