REVIEW QUOTES
“Guitarist Steve Haskin has lived near the Mississippi since moving to the Twin Cities in 1980. Steve has hiked the banks of the river from Minneapolis to Hastings and those walks inspired the music on his latest recording,
Mississippi Goin’ By. Steve’s first CD Boundary Waters, inspired by the northern wilderness was soft and pastoral, but for a recording about the great river, Steve wanted a different sound.”

“The Mississippi, for me, means history. I wanted to write music that sounded like it came from the past, so I chose my old friends Clint Hoover on the harmonica and Mark Briere on the mandolin. I think the music accomplishes my goal of honoring the river I so love.”
Minnesota Monthly


“Each song is a wonderful excursion into the inner space created by strings on fine wood and the soft wail of an old harp.
Blues Revue


“Steve Haskin’s guitar pieces really do evoke the sense of an afternoon on the banks of the Big Muddy, with subtle references to the many musics that that border the Mississippi.
Dirty Linen


Just one listen makes it easy to imagine the bright and breezy summer days that must have inspired it. Its an album that belongs on a summer vacation — pack it with your fishing rod and your cooler full of cold ones.”
Carolyn Petrie, Art Murmurs, Skyway News

REVIEW
Peter Krampert, Author, The Encyclopedia of the Harmonica

I have just finished listening to Steve Haskin’s album, “Mississippi Goin’ By” featuring Clint Hoover on the harmonica. It’s a really hard album to describe, consisting entirely of instrumentals that are sometimes Jazz, sometimes Americana sometimes ethnic. Clint’s harmonica, as always is extremely tasteful and inventive, supporting guitar player Steve Haskin and making him sound even better. This is a great for driving or for listening at home when you want something very nice in the background.
