Coming Soon: Eli West Tour

Seattle-based Eli West, known for his work with Cahalen Morrison and Tim O'Brien, returns to the UK for a solo tour in May. Eli will be performing material from his debut album THE BOTH, which includes contributions from Bill Frisell, Dori Freeman, and Anna and Elizabeth. The album focuses on the story of his two grandfathers; one a decorated WWII prisoner of war, the other a Brethren preacher and peace advocate. They couldn't have differed more, but together they shared a family. In this spirit, the theme of the album is duality: the first half showcases carefully built arrangements of six American folk songs, the second revisits these as instrumental passages, revealing new sides to the other. Northern Sky's Allan Wilkinson recently witnessed a superb performance by Ely with long time musical partner Cahalen Morrison at The Greystones in Sheffield, a memorable night shared with some of the cream of the Sheffield music scene, Richard Hawley, Martin Simpson, James Fagan, Sam Carter and Tom Wright.
