The Princes Of Serendip were featured on The Soupy Gato Show, a podcast that provides a fascinating compendium of unusual musics.

“The Princes of Serendip are beguiling in a way uniquely their own, with a sound at once both classic and whimsical, presenting lovely original songs that infiltrate your mind with a payload of substance few see coming – more reminiscent of the Incredible String Band perhaps than of more standard folk acts.”Flying Cat Music

“The Princes’ music is difficult to describe . . . Folk, New Age, and classical influences can all be detected, as well as lyrics that Lewis Carroll and Ogden Nash would envy.”
