"The Bankesters have been heading in the right direction with their last several releases, and the new one, Looking Forward (Blue Circle Records), hits the mark squarely."

Jon Weisberger - The Nashville Scene

"This bluegrass family band is back with a strong follow-up to last year’s self-titled album (which, you’ll remember, made our Best of Bluegrass list). Sweetly sung harmonies abound on this collection thanks to daughters Emily, Alysha, and Melissa, who sings lead on what’s arguably the best song on the album, the Battle of Gettysburg story-song “First Minnesota.” Parental units Phil and Dorene deliver another high point with the jaunty “Where I Am,” written by Chris Jones with Tom T. and Dixie Hall."
