 At The Foot Of The Mountain video/single

Eliza Gilkyson

Howling Dog Records

The first single from Gilkyson's upcoming album, Songs From The River Wind, is delightful. The lyrics tell what it's like to live at the foot of a mountain. The music is stunning folk, beautiful and sweet. It was co-written with John Gorkia. The musicans on the track are Don Richmond (acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, string bass, drums, electric guitar, violins, harmony vocals), Michael Hearne (harmony vocals), with Gilkyson on acoustic guitar and lead vocals.

It's a lyric video, with the most gorgeous photography of scenes from Taos, NM: a foot of a moutain, canyons, day, night, pueblos, corn, apples, horses.

I've liked everything I've heard by Gilkyson, and this is no exception. You will too, if you give this a chance. I suggest you do, for the fragile, yet beautiful and firm, folk music.
