"Wild slide and gritty guitar"

~ Wanda Callagy

"Full of his deft finger-picking style in his driving originals, he invites you in for a listen again and again"

~ Wanda Callagy

..I happened to catch Mike Herman in Hudson, NY last night.
He has always been a stellar finger picking, Piedmont-style blues guitarist, but I was struck by the increased authority of his singing.  He has been a solo performer for a few years now, following the breakup of the much beloved duo, The Hellhounds, and his "woodshedding" over numerous gigs in that span has clearly paid off. ..." - Mark Drnek

"I'm hearing Bob Dylan, Jorma Kaukonen, Leon Redbone, & some Guthrie when I'm listening to this guy!" ~ A New Friend & Fan Found at the Binghamton Mets Game, May 25th

"...superb fingerpicking guitarist...."
Rit Sheridan - The Blueshound

"...definitely in touch with the Blues Gods..." Dirty Linen

"...exuberant finger-pickin'..."
Art Tipaldi - Blues Revue

"I received BluesnRags Bag o' Tabs Lesson Packet the other night. I was blown away with the accuracy of the tabs and your fantastic guitar playing on the demo CD. You really got it together! I would like to order another one..... You sound so good on the demo CD that I would also like to order both of your CD's....." ~ Joe

"Hey, Mike love your cd too. You are the picker my friend, and 'Lorna Lee' made me cry. Hope we will play together again, God Bless" 
Jack Christensen

"Hey Mike, Love the CD's! Really great stuff! This show's gonna be great!..." Kerry Kearney

"Sounds just like I'm listening to Jorma" Lynn Horowitz Vesper
