Fire & Grace has teamed up with ace mandolin player and composer Ashley Hoyer. Hoyer is a brilliant musician who brings an authentic mandolin virtuosity and flair for modern instrumental composition to Fire & Grace – the trio is known as Fire & Grace & Ash. Our first CD – Partita Americana is now available here: Partita Americana – Fire & Grace & Ash
The recording begins with an epic blending of Bach and American fiddle tunes called Partita Americana. Other tracks include – Ashokan Farewell by Jay Ungar, Unless by Hawktail, BlueThrash which is a medley of old time fiddle tunes arranged by Ashley, and the gorgeous Canadian waltz called the Waltz of the Little Girls.
