ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Formed in 1972, the Deseret String Band has performed throughout the US and Europe and Japan. The band's purpose is to explore pioneer and cowboy music of the 19th-century West. It has acquired a few aliases through the years in addition to The Bunkhouse Orchestra, including the Orchestre de Bunque and the String Band of Desire. Playing fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, banjo-mandolin, banjo-cello, harmonica, various squeeze boxes, and pitched fork.

"The songs are faithfully rendered here by four extremely talented musicians who employ a variety of instruments and arrangements that culminate in a thoroughly pleasing musical experience."

- Bluegrass Unlimited

"The Deseret String Band holds audiences in a mesmerizing whirlwind of mandolin, guitar, banjo, and fiddle strings. It is joyful, lively music with personality, often with a sense of humor, played with intensity...."

- Salt Lake Tribune

"If there is a single fiber of pioneer in your body, the Deseret String Band will find it and sing to it. Their music is impossible not to enjoy. If offers a foothold in reality no high-gloss group can give you."

- Deseret News

"Anything I could say about the band capturing the spirit of old-time music would not be enough to describe the feeling of joy which comes through their music... Their refreshing creativity can be seen in their arrangements, original lyrics, and instrumentation...While their respect for tradition is evident in every aspect of their music... All have superb control of their respective instruments and apply their talents with the utmost sensitivity on each and every song."
