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.

Acoustic Guitar Session [VIDEO]

While on tour for her excellent new album Reckless Skyline, singer-songwriter Caitlin Canty stopped by the Acoustic Guitar offices to play three songs on her 1930s Recording King guitar and talk about her recent move to Nashville.
Watch Canty, joined by pedal steel and guitar player Eric Heywood (Ray LaMontagne’s Pariah Dogs, Tift Merritt, The Pretenders), perform “Get Up,” “I Never,” and “Southern Man.”
Canty also shares how she went from wanting a new Gibson J-45 to picking up a vintage Recording King and falling in love with the way it complements her vocal range.
“This guitar inspired a lot of the songs,” says Canty, referring to her new album. “It felt like co-writing with my guitar.”
