ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Geslison and Geoff Groberg arrange and record hymns using handmade acoustic instruments. The arrangements are meant to be reflective of America's early years--especially the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Geslison and Groberg commonly refer to their music as "Early American Hymns." The instruments used on their recordings include handmade guitars, mandolins, and banjos. Among these instruments is a 1921 Gibson A4 mandolin, a 1955 Bjarnton Swedish nylon-string guitar, a 1978 Martin HD28 guitar, a 1984 Flatiron A5 mandolin, a 5-string banjo made by Geoff Groberg, and a 1950s era arch top guitar that Geoff rebuilt in 2012. Instruments heard on Geslison Groberg recordings vary greatly. Though most tracks contain guitar, piano, or mandolin, many tracks contain instruments like fiddle, violin, flute, bassoon, autoharp, banjo, bass, mountain dulcimer, octave mandolin, low "D" whistle, bodhran, and voice.

Contributing Musicians:

Lauren Peterson: Flute
Angela Soffe: Voice (on When Restless in My Bed I Lie "Emma's Lullaby")
Jennifer Groberg: Voice (on Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah)
Michele Bowen: Bassoon
Jonathon Wood: Fiddle, Octave Mandolin (on Come All Ye Saints of Zion)
Nate Olson: Fiddle (on I Know That My Redeemer Lives; O God, Our Help in Ages Past 1835)
John Wright: Violin (on God is Love)
