Review from Dirty Linen Magazine, December 2007/January 2008: 'Tapestry is the husband-wife duo of Denise and Michael Grupp-Verbon. They play harp (Denise) and guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, and percussion (Michael) in lovely acoustic arrangements that are calming and restful but never deteriorate into sonic pablum. The 11 cuts include three original tunes and some unexpected adaptations of pop tunes, including Sting's 'Fields of Gold' and 'Riders on the Storm,' in addition to the usual trad tunes 'Wild Mountain Thyme' and 'The Ash Grove.' All in all, a striking and surprising mix that hits all the right notes.' By Susan Hartman. Review from The Toledo Blade, September 16, 2007: ' "With their second release of instrumental gems, Toledo-area musicians Denise and Michael Grupp-Verbon show that they are quite capable of matching talents with some of the more well-known performers in the New Age and folk genres. With more than 52 minutes of gorgeous and laid-back, often very intricate melodies, they are worth a listen by fans of light acoustic fare. "This time around they offer three original tunes, four traditional folk/Celtic numbers and four pop songs. Their arrangements of previously recorded works, such as Sting's Fields of Gold, are bright and interesting. It's sometimes uncanny just how much depth they can wring out of the marriage of just two instruments, with Denise on the harp and Michael on 6 and 12-string guitars and percussion." By Ken Rosenbaum TAPESTRY celebrated it's release of 'The Journey' at a rousing performance during the Somerset Folk Harp Festival in Somerset, New Jersey in July, 2007, where it was very well-received.
