Donna Ulisse Walk This Mountain Down 

Once an artist goes through the machinations of Music City’s mainstream hit factory and doesn’t become a superstar, she’s cast to the wind. Where that artist ends up depends on the individual. Some wind up bitter, stuck in their own version of honky-tonk hell. But vocalist Donna Ulisse went through the process and landed firmly on her own two feet. Instead of bemoaning what she lost, she rejoices in the opportunity to return to bluegrass — the form of music she loves best. With the release of her second bluegrass album, Walk This Mountain Down, Ulisse proves that she is every bit as good as her predecessors. Steeped in pure instrumental tradition and lyrical depth, the release is a fine example of Ulisse’s incredible vocal and songwriting talent. Equally spunky and sentimental, Walk This Mountain Down proves that Ulisse is the current queen of the hill. 4 out of 5 stars.
