"...superior children's music."|
"...the next step, when you've finally heard enough Raffi
to last several lifetimes."
"Timmy Abell's music for children has been compared to that of Pete Seeger. He shares with this acclaimed performer of folk music for children such qualities as down-to-earth yet imagination-stretching lyrics, strong values, skilled acoustic musicianship, directness and respect for his young audience."
"Creating the melodies of childhood memories through a true family values musical sound-bank, this easy-voiced, versatile musician fills his recordings with a dash of toe-tapping spice, offbeat humor and an insightful perspective on things that matter most to young people."
Susan Farrington, The Sanford Herald
"It's just thrilling to find a children's recording that can be played again and again while retaining a freshness about it that even adults can enjoy."
Andy's Front Hall
"...really, truly absolutely rich and rambunctious, well crafted [children's music]...so good, you won't want car trips to end."
"Timmy somehow gets inside the mind of a child and knows exactly what appeals. His music has that mild-mannered ambiance so many families adore."

"Lyrics as bright as the banjo that backs them up, ...and a voice as gentle and affectionate as a hand, smoothing the sleeper's cheek."
"Original songs for children that actually reach the intended audience are harder to write than most people think. North Carolina's Timmy Abell balances all the elements: the silly and the serious, the strange and the familiar. His voice is friendly, light and fun."
The Independent Weekly, Durham, NC
"Your CD is the most requested in our home. Thank you. Your music has helped us make memories that will last a lifetime...for all of our family."
