"Spring was welcomed at the Botanical Center with a rousing performance by The Gnomes ... The audience was dancing in the aisles to music that was engaging, high-spirited, and created an extraordinary mood of pure delight." — Jonathan, Botanical Center Conservancy, Roger Williams Park, Providence RI
"There are some works of art and music that just stand out, not by their ability to sensationalize, or to excite, but merely on a masterful and unique vision conveyed with superb craftsmanship. The Gnomes' music is one such example. What The Gnomes do is way above and beyond the call of just good music... they just draw you in by the beauty of what they do." — Arthur Ketchen, Celtic Beat Magazine
"The Gnomes defy categorization." — Jeffrey D. Wagner, Crowdy News
The band's members include some of Rhode Island's best known musicians: Phil Edmonds (Irish whistle and button accordion); Cathy Clasper-Torch (fiddle, keyboard, er-hu, vocals); Mike Fischman (guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, banjo, vocals); Peter Breen (bass, vocals); and Matt Demick (percussion/drums).
