Cahalen Morrison and Eli West: The Holy Coming of the Storm (MP3)

Cahalen Morrison and Eli West

Here’s another sweet new record that has come to Fiddlefreak by way of Devon at Hearth Music. The Holy Coming of the Storm from Cahalen Morrison and Eli West hit the streets on January 30 and has been stuck in my CD player ever since. Their new old-time bluegrass songs strike just the right balance between contemporary honesty and traditional roots. Their complete mastery of the stringed axes they wield (banjo, guitar, bouzouki, dobro) ensures that they cut to the chase just as surely as an old-style two-man crosscut saw. They’ve garnered praise from Dirk Powell and support from prestigious booking agents in Europe. Give a listen, you’ll see why.

    Hi Stuart,

    I stumbled upon your site when looking for fiddle links (I started playing about six months ago) and I’m enjoying going through some of the content you have posted. I especially enjoyed the music of Cahalen Morrison & Eli West so thanks for sharing this! I hadn’t come across them before but will now look out for their music and any possible gigs.

    Cheers

  2. So nice to hear from across the pond! Y’all have real good taste in Americana, sometimes better than us Americans.
