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.

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.

'This is stupendous,' participant Welch says of the concert. Spectators will feel the same way.

A superb concert film chock-full of thrilling musical moments and backstage peeks at some of America's finest roots artists.
