Hop High is the debut album of progressive bluegrass group Crooked Still. Most of the songs on this album are traditional, but played in a different way than by other artists - with lineup without traditional bluegrass instruments like guitar and mandolin, consisting of cello, bass and banjo only (occasionally adding guitar and fiddle).[1][2][3][4]
