Folk Alley Presents: Caitlin CantyFolk Alley

It's been quite a year for Vermont native Caitlin Canty. She released her breakout album Reckless Skyline in January, backed by an all-star "dream band" including Eric Heywood, Billy Conway and Jeffrey Foucault; made the big move from the Green Mountain State to Music City; and recently won the 2015 Telluride Troubadour Contest at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

She stopped in at Beehive Productions studio in Saranac Lake, N.Y. for a Folk Alley Session in June, accompanied by guitarist Jefferson Hamer. Here they perform "Get Up," one of the many standout tracks on Reckless Skyline. This song was inspired by a favorite hiking trail on an Idaho mountainside recently hit hard by wildfire — the same trail on which she was once trapped by a lightning storm.
