Bonny Light Horseman, the folk supergroup subtly recasts centuries of standards for our fractious and uncertain present on their self-titled debut album.
Bonny Light Horseman formed casually, like a front-porch jam. Fruit Bats singer Eric D. Johnson heard that his friends, veteran multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman and singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, were getting together to revisit ancient folk songs. He asked to sit in on the experiment, and the chemistry was instant. The trio reimagines centuries of standards, making old chestnuts feel new. Bonny Light Horseman, is an elusive kind of sonic event: a bottled blend of lightning and synergy that will excite fans of multiple genres, eras, and ages.
These 10 performances may sound traditional, even staid, three dovetailing voices floating above bright acoustic guitars and ringing pianos. There are references to bygone wars and the bounty of a father’s garden, to the Biblical parable of prisoners Paul and Silas and the folk heroism of John Henry.
