what's in a name?
"Chalybeate" comes from the Latin name for iron-rich
water. Many early Americans traveled long and far to
resorts in the eastern mountains seeking healing
properties of the mineral water springs that flowed from
the ground. One resort located in the Allegheny
Mountains was known as Sweet Chalybeate Springs. Like the
medicinal spring waters, we draw from the source that
feeds this rich heritage of traditional music.
