"I, along with everyone else, took great delight in the 'N2K Duo' experience. 
The two of you bring together great skill and technical accomplishment, as well as a passion and joy in sharing your music. I felt drawn into your performance on several levels, the musicality and compatibility you both bring, together with the unique combination of violin and vibraphone.  You have a passion for life that finds expression in your music, it touches the senses and goes even deeper -- into the soul."

- Archdeacon Michael H. Mitchell, Nova Scotia, Canada

I was impressed with the musical work your group is doing. I also loved what I saw on the website in terms of your use of jazz in worship. Keep it up!!! We need this kind of creativity at work in the church. I hope I can come and worship with you at some time in the future.”

- Tex Sample

"What else makes the Jazz Vespers service so unique? Maybe it's the melding of jazz, a quintessentially American art form that is at once introspective and exploratory, with the centuries-old liturgy of the Church. Based on the late-day service known as "Evensong," Jazz Vespers allows liturgists and artists to invest traditional worship with a soaring sense of the divine."

- Bill Slocum, Contributor to The New York Times

"The Mahone Bay Centre (a not-for-profit, community-based organization) and its Lifelong Learning at the Centre program serve a thriving “active living” seniors community in Lunenburg County on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. 
The N2K duet, with Kate Cash and Norm Freeman, was tailor-made for our programming and our clientele.  The combination of two outstanding professionals coming together to perform music at the highest level, interspersed with their life stories, creates a unique performance event. 
“Fresh” and “surprising” come to mind as ways to describe the evening they shared with us at the Centre.  Their personal stories were compelling, displaying a passion for their lifework that was then brought to bear on their music-making, all enhanced by the obvious warmth of their collaboration in sharing with others. 
N2K Duo is first and foremost a musical group, and they display first class musicianship that quickly drew our audience in.  The programming was tasteful and eclectic, with an energy that was sustained throughout.  The crowded room thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
We can only hope that many others will have the opportunity to benefit from this wonderful experience."
