Raised in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, Knight became interested in folk music while in high school. During college, he became familiar with the music and stories of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, learning them people who had them as part of their culture and community for generations. He has also collected songs and stories from other parts of the world, including England, Scotland, Central Asia, Columbia and the Amazon region of Peru.
