Mining songs of old — like "Henry Lee," taken from a Peggy Seeger recording — and adding its own invigorating stamp has become acoustic group Crooked Still's defining characteristic. In its fourth appearance on Mountain Stage since hitting the road six years ago, the group performs songs from its fourth studio album, Some Strange Country.

Founding members Aoife O'Donovan (vocals), Gregory Liszt (banjo) and Corey DiMario (bass) are joined by the group's newest members, Tristan Clarridge (cello) and Brittany Haas (fiddle), who have appeared on the last two Crooked Still albums and its Live release.

This Mountain Stage performance was originally published Nov 9, 2010.
