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

    May 31, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • The music is grand, the performances are direct and Down From the Mountain is unpretentious in its presentation of both.

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

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

  • 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.
