Cahalen Morrison And Eli West On Mountain Stage
Loading the player ...
Cahalen Morrison and Eli West appear on Mountain Stage
, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College. Innovative and subtle, Morrison and West's music sounds vibrant while drawing from near-ancient folk sources. Broad in scope and subject, Morrison's writing has been compared to novelist Cormac McCarthy. West brings jagged, angular arrangements based in bluegrass and old-time music, but informed by a 21st-century sensibility.
Together, the two evoke the spooky, lonesome roots of the earliest country and bluegrass duets. Their latest album, Our Lady of the Tall Trees
, has been building buzz within the highest echelon of roots musicians, and the two count Tim O'Brien
, Dirk Powell and Aoife O'Donovan among their most active fans.
