(CLICK HERE to read the full review.)

“Wonderfully exuberant . . . simply delightful. Here we have music that offers life, and does so abundantly.”

Fanfare Record Magazine (“Come to the River”)

Long ago, the sparkling fiddle tunes and haunting ballads of the British Isles came across the water, taking root in the hills of Virginia. They mingled with shape-note hymns and African spirituals – creating the soulful music we call Appalachian. The people of the mountains raise their communal voices in celebration of daily life– love, singing, dancing and prayer.
