"Six Feet of Earth is Anarchistic Folk, Steeped in Tradition, Yet Fueled With A Punk Attitude"
"While there's many an American artist keeping alive the old bluegrass and country songs, especially from the Appalachians, there's too few doing the same for the rich heritage of traditional Anglo or Scottish-American folk ballads from the 17th and 18th centuries. We need more like Mike Oberst"

"Look out for Mike Oberst - he's great. A wonderful singer, multi-instrumentalist, interpreter of traditional music and songwriter. Not to be missed!"
"As a performer, band leader and tune collector, Mike Oberst has established himself as a key player in the preservation of Anglo-American musical forms in the Ohio River Valley region and on a national level, as well. Mr.Oberst's passionate dedication to traditional music history and performance is a rare and crucial element in relation to the future health of traditional music in our country."
