Live From Blackalachia is a live album and movie composed of dynamic band arrangements from Moses Sumney’s first two albums. It was recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the summer of 2020, on a stage built on a hill nestled within a 72- acre ranch.
In January 2020, Moses Sumney and band gathered in Western North Carolina to design festival-ready versions of songs from Aromanticism and græ. After the world shut down and the tour was cancelled, Moses maintained a desire to share the show, but in a new way. Not just a live stream or recording. A film. A concert film. So, in the summer of 2020, the band re-convened in Asheville and designed the show for Live From Blackalachia. Moses directed the conceptual concert film and decided to release it in both audio and visual formats.
