we spend hundreds of hours listening quietly to old field recordings of people singing family songs, in their farm house kitchens in the 1940s — these old songs are immense, and hold vibrant, vibrating worlds within them — we are excited to share them with you in full color.

"They came to NPR and brought many of us to tears with some of the most yearning harmonies I've heard at the Tiny Desk. These songs are given few embellishments — sometimes a fiddle is added to a single voice, sometimes a banjo or guitar chimes in — but always the power is in the sparseness. If you've never thought your tastes would lean to mountain music, take a deep breath and soak it all in." Bob Boilen, NPR Music
