"When you hear Rachel sing, it is like you were sitting in the dark and somebody suddenly turned the lights on.......her music oozes optimism."     ~Robert Wagner, Calliope Folk Music Society of Pittsburgh

"As BOTTLE WORKS Ethnic Art Center's Activities Director, and now Consultant, I've never had to worry about the quality of any program Rachel is attached to. With her involvement It's guaranteed to be an inspiring success. That's not only due to her musical knowledge and talent, but also to her passion for her work and her audience. Rachel is a real treasure to our community."  ~
