Two Rivers - "When I first heard Folding Mr. Lincoln, I felt an immediate kinship with their folksy, rootsy sound. I got in touch with the band and together we made a music video for "Lay It All Down", which was shot in one insanely fun night in their hometown of San Diego, CA. Later, when I was making a feature length film, Harry Mestyanek scored the entire movie with Folding Mr. Lincoln songs and some original instrumental pieces and it was the perfect backdrop for my story. These days, I'm proud to count myself as one of Folding Mr. Lincoln's biggest fans. And now, this story of Lynne & Eugene (Two Rivers), this story of life-long love, in all its poignancy and glory, once again touched me to the core. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do". - Geeta Malik - Film Maker, Los Angeles
"When you come to a Folding Mr. Lincoln show you get to experience the pure joy of musicians feeding off of each other and the audience". - Michael Hart - The Julian News.
