"If you’re a rookie to the newgrass genre, then this album is for you. Seemingly void of the heavy strumming found in many string band performances, but also dripping wet with a warm southern twang, “Achin’” is a marvelous gem of an album."  

 

-Appalachian Jamwich

"Achin’ is full of originals just as ribald, raw and real as the Old Time music from the fields and hollers of Southern Appalachia 150 years ago."

 

- The Daily Times, Blount County TN

"With the first café concert of the new theater season, culture official Tom Coppers had set the bar very high for himself. From America he managed to tie the West King String Band. A band that is virtually unknown here, but be sure that their first European tour will turn things around. They described their repertoire as a mix of authentic folk, contemporary bluegrass with a bit of country here and there. What these genres need are musicians who not only master their instruments to perfection, but who can also play at lightning speed. Properties that this foursome possesses to a large extent. Fingertips on mandolin, acoustic guitar and fiddle were staggering."

- LAMBERT SMITS of Keys and Chords
