It's no surprise that two Kentucky singer-songwriters would come together to bond over their love of mountain life. But the first album-length collaboration by cellist Ben Sollee and guitarist/banjo player Daniel Martin Moore, Dear Companion, is about little else. Recorded to raise money and awareness for Appalachian preservation — most pointedly in opposition to mountaintop-removal coal mining — the album was produced by another likeminded Kentuckian, Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Here, Sollee and Moore perform live at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
