Tracy Bonham's fourth album, Masts of Manhatta, was recorded mostly between her homes in Brooklyn and Woodstock N.Y., where she and her husband escape from the busy city. She is joined here by guitarist Jason Roberts and the Mountain Stage Band — Ron Sowell on acoustic guitar, Steve Hill on bass, Bob Thompson and Ryan Kennedy on percussion, Ammed Solomon on drums and vocalist Julie Adams.

Masts features the work of guitarist Smokey Hormel (Tom Waits, Beck, Rufus Wainwright) and Bonham's violin chops, which can be heard here on the witty "We Moved Our City to the Country."

As a bonus track, this concert features Mountain Stage pianist Bob Thompson performing the spiritual "Deep River."

This Mountain Stage performance was originally published September 29, 2010.
