BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN: “Green/Green” 7″. Released 7th August 2020

The timeless qualities of traditional tunes can carry us
across oceans and eons, linking us not only to the past
but to each other as well. It was under the banner of
those eternal connections that the trio of Bonny Light
Horseman came together. From festival fields and a
German art hub to a snowy upstate studio and
everywhere in between, the astral folk outfit – comprised
of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats, The Shins)
and Josh Kaufman (The National, Bob Weir) – mixes the
ancient, mystical medium of traditional folk music with a
contemporary, collective brush.
 Their self-titled debut was an elusive kind of sonic
event: a bottled blend of lightning and synergy that will
excite fans of multiple genres, eras and ages. They
follow that up with the ‘Green/Green’ 7”, featuring two
songs that didn’t quite fit on the album. Says Mitchell,
“We recorded ‘Green Rocky Road’ and ‘Greenland
Fishery’ for our LP, but ended up cutting them at the last
minute to keep the record simpler (and higher quality
for vinyl). We see the songs as a bit of a pair, they both
feature Eric’s banjo playing and lean a little more
‘Americana’. We’re glad they have a home on
‘Green/Green’ and are grateful to be able to share music
at a time when the world is hurting.”
 “Bonny Light Horseman mix traditional music and
modern composition in ways that are really swooningly
rendered and out of time. The seams in the way they’ve
stitched those worlds together don’t show at all. They
move beautifully between the two. Gorgeous” – NPR
