Roots Run Deep was selected as 2008's best Folk/Roots CD by MPLS - St. Paul Magazine.
"New Roots Duo, Roots Run Deep. Finger-style guitarists Ben Woolman and Dan Schwarz traded in their traditional guitars for an acoustic baritone and lap-steel guitar, and the result was a new kind of acoustic music that seemed to grow organically out of these strangely paired instruments. By turns fiery and meditative, their first album was, we hope, a hint of even greater things to come." - Tad Simons
