Product Description: "Spirit of the Mountains" is a recording of traditional instrumental music from the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Fiddle, banjo, mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, autoharp, and guitar were used on this recording. To capture the spirit of the music, the recording was done with all four musicians in one room, listening to and playing off each other as has been done for hundreds of years. And to create the “live” sound heard in authentic mountain music, there were no double tracks or dubbing used in the recording process. Listen as friends gather on the “front porch” to celebrate the joy and the spirit of the music, and the mountains from which it flows.
Spirit of the Mountains is the title of this recording, and the name of the group of four musician friends who collaborated on this project. Having played together in living rooms, on porches, and at festivals over the years, these friends decided to combine their talents and love for the music to make this recording. Anne and Rob Lough have been making music together formally and informally for over 40 years. Nationally known for her teaching and performing skills on the mountain and hammered dulcimer, Anne also shares her love and knowledge of traditional music, dance and folklore in schools and educational venues throughout the country. Jeff and Janet Furman have been playing old-time music together for 30 years. Both award-winning musicians, they have played on multiple recordings of traditional American and Celtic music. Their love for the music and each other is easily seen and heard in their performances. As warm and effective teachers, Jeff and Janet have both been on the faculty and performed concerts at numerous music festivals and workshops across the country.
As "Spirit of the Mountains", Anne, Rob, Jeff, and Janet hope the music gets your toes tappin', carries you away to a special place in the mountains, and touches your heart."
