Music for the Mountains
Filed under: Mixin' With Series,Mixtapes | Posted by:

Following last week’s Tree Mixtape, we thought we’d keep with the nature theme and share some of our favorite songs about the Mountains. It starts off with some real stomp and holler tunes, leads into a number of bluegrass classics, and then ends up with a pair of contemplative odes to the beautiful hills. This is the most bluegrass based tape that we’ve done so far (as bluegrass IS the music of the mountains), but there are some other songs thrown in for good measure (a little Blitzen Trapper and Neil Young to go along with your banjo jams?). Check it out after the jump!
