Ampersand is a duo featuring sisters, Katie Henderson on Fiddle and Liz Davis Maxfield on cello. With their fresh acoustic sound, they explore the music of their own roots including the Celtic music of their childhood and the Scandinavian music of their heritage.
They teach workshops in innovative string playing and perform throughout the Western States.
Ampersand’s album and youtube videos have attracted fans from all over the world who call their sound, “hauntingly beautiful” and “the best fiddle-cello duet I’ve ever listened to!”
Liz and Katie grew up playing Celtic and American folk music with their family band, FiddleSticks, which also featured Mark Davis (their dad) on bodhran/guitar, and Becca Davis Stevenson (their sister) on voice/ flutes. Fiddlesticks toured throughout the United States and recorded eight albums.
