MoMH Recordings

The Live Concert Recordings

The Crooked Road’s annual Mountains of Music Homecoming features Crooked Road concerts in dozens of communities throughout Southwest Virginia. Not surprisingly, when over 70 hours of live concert recordings from the Homecoming by some of America’s finest traditional artists are boiled down to one hour of handpicked selections, the result is a compilation as stunning for its performances as it is for the variety of its material.
