This song is in D major/modal in a double drop D tuning, where the 6th and 1st strings are both tuned down a whole step to D. The chords are A minor 7 to D, one measure each. Notice that the first string D drone creates an A minor 11 voicing; very pretty and typical of Appalachian drone style music. The two bar progression plays four times as an intro and then eight more times as the verse.
