A film that's lovely to hear, though not much to look at.

The music is grand, the performances are direct and Down From the Mountain is unpretentious in its presentation of both.

Top Critic

In her performances and asides to the documentarians, it is Welch who best articulates why this music is so moving.

November 8, 2001
Philadelphia Inquirer
Top Critic

Like the old-timey music that inspired it, Down From the Mountain is sweet, serene and utterly unconcerned with polish.

Top Critic

A tender tribute to Hartford's spirit, and to the enduring value of the plaintive and celebratory music that emerged from this country's farm fields and front porches and backwoods churches.

The whole experience is wonderful -- and this is a film to own on videotape, since you'll probably want to play these songs again and again.
