Classically trained cellist Tony Rogers and banjo player Amy McIntire perform their distinctive string music together as The Ahs. They began playing music in rural New Hampshire in 2005, moving shortly after to Portland, Ore., and then again to Hinton, W. Va., three years ago. Their second album, Leonard Cohen's Dream, captures their ethereal chamber-folk and intertwining vocal harmonies.

Mountain Stage band members Ron Sowell, Julie Adams and host Larry Groce sing background vocals on "Rhododendron" (West Va.'s state flower), and Bob Thompson joins in on piano.

This is a repeat performance of Mountain Stage.
