Cahalen Morrison & Eli West w/ Shaun Cromwell
Cahalen Morrison is not like many other 20-something musicians out there. He is genuinely old-time, but from a region (rural New Mexico) not often associated with a thriving string-band music scene. His multi-instrumental and songwriting talents were developed in small circles, privately, over many years, far outside the mainstream. He shows definite influences of kindred old spirits like Norman Blake, Greg Brown, and Doc Watson that were obviously instilled at a young age and not picked up in a "back-to-acoustic" fad. But he is very much his own man, traveling and playing with a determined Western independence and an easy hospitality towards those he encounters along the way.
And so it was that along came Eli West - another unique twenty-something who came by this music more circuitously, but sharing the same authenticity and Western spirit - and their mutual musical easy-goingness found some common ground in which wonderful things grow. The roots are strong, the branches are shady, and the guitars, banjos, mandolins and voices carry you far off the beaten path to a Good Place out under open Western skies.
