Lap slide guitar, mandolin and clawhammer banjo from Seattle-based duo
A good midwinter blues antidote, the serenading sounds and dynamic rhythms captured here ably showcase the thrilling musicianship and deep messages conjured up by Seattle-based duo, Cahalen and Eli.
Twelve original compositions and two traditional covers draw on Appalachian traditions with more than a wistful emotional nod to 24-year-old Cahalen’s Isle of Lewis-born great grandfather, a Gaelic poet.
Deft finger-picking on lap slide guitar, mandolin and clawhammer banjo ensure a lively, rootsy ambience for double harmony songs. Follow the buzz these guys will create.
