"Brilliance, boisterousness, breadth of appeal and sheer bonhomie... an exceptionally brilliant bunch"  Folkworld 

"Habadekuk are currently Demark's most exciting and innovative folk band. They wowed audiences at Cambridge Folk Festival 2012 and 2014. Denmark's answer to Bellowhead."  Eddie Barcan, Cambridge Folk Festival
