ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FiddleSticks sixth album is "Return to Nauvoo: Traditional and Old Time Hymns"

With this album we present our first FiddleSticks collection of hymns. These are sacred songs and tunes that we feel an extra connection with and we love playing them. They are mostly traditional, and we've arranged them all in our eclectic Celtic style.

We chose the name "Return to Nauvoo" for this album during a week-long performing tour in Nauvoo, Illinois, the 19th century frontier town on the Mississippi River that was once the center of the Mormon faith. It was also the home of many of our ancestors, and so in a way our week in Nauvoo was like returning to our family roots.

Many of the hymns and sacred songs in this collection date from the Nauvoo period, and all have been a strength and a support for people of faith since the time of Nauvoo and before. By remembering their music, we can connect with the heroes of the past.

This album was produced by Liz, the cellist in the FiddleSticks band, and Liz's imaginative and improvisational style is featured in many of the arrangements.

FiddleSticks is a family musical group that performs folk songs, Celtic style tunes, and traditional hymns. The band is made up of of Liz Davis - cello; Katie Davis - fiddle, voice; Becca Davis Stevenson - flute, pennywhistle, voice; Mark Davis - guitar, bodhran; and Andi Pitcher Davis - hammered dulcimer.

I love it!
My first FiddleSticks CD. It's fabulous. My kids even play it over and over. (They have good taste). Love the arrangements of the hymns. I'll buy more of their CDs.

This is an awesome CD. Wonderful. Even my teens like it.
I love this CD. Amazing Grace is my favorite, but all of the songs are so nice to listen to. I love their voices, and the instruments used. The harmonies are just breathtaking.

Beautiful Hymn ... Lovely Fiddle / Cello ... Great Album!
The most beautiful rendition of Be Thou My Vision I’ve ever heard. The combination of Fiddle & Cello is breathtaking. Three verses of string instruments & one vocal … brilliant!

A nice alternative to the MoTabs
This CD features some early Latter-day Saint hymns, arranged for voice and folk instruments. The instrumentals are more interesting than the vocals, but FiddleSticks' Celtic-inspired sound is a good match for the material, and the album provides LDS Sunday-afternoon listeners with a nice alternative to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
