From The Mountaintop


Comprised of seventeen songs whose history can be traced back decades or even centuries through the Appalachian region, From The Mountaintop, features renowned cellist, Dave Eggar, along with an assembled all-star cast of musicians. This folk-inspired Chesky album is sure to delight your ears and transport you to the Appalachian region of years long passed.

From The Mountaintop is another hallmark in traditional music. It is the outgrowth of an earlier collaboration between award-winning, classically trained cellist Dave Eggar and seminal bluegrass aficionado Dr. Ralph Stanley. Since then, Dave Eggar and Deoro - Eggar’s trio with Chuck Palmer and Tom Pirozzi have returned to Appalachia and performed numerous times, becoming kinfolk to musicians like Noah Wall, Tyler Hughes, Jake Baine, and Tommy Norris. That pilgrimage, in 2010, began Dave Eggar’s journey home to Appalachia and her music. This CD is a result of that crossing.

Part of the Chesky Binaural + Series, all recorded with a single microphone, the band appears right before you with this spacious, lush and multi-dimensional recording. Now headphone users will hear the same three-dimensional sound and imaging as audiophiles have for the past 25 years with Chesky Recordings. Also these new Binaural+ Series albums capture even more spatial realism for the home audiophile market, bringing you one step closer to the actual event. You will hear some of the most natural and pure cool folk music ever recorded.
