Giveaway Info

Bonny Light Horseman is a collaboration of three artists: Anais Mitchell, Eric D Johnson, and Josh Kaufman. Johnson is well known for his indie folk project, Fruit Bats, and has been friends with Kaufman, who has worked with artists like the National and Josh Ritter, for a while. They met Mitchell through social media and she had her own success on Broadway as the author, composer, and lyricist for the Hadestown, which has won eight Tony Awards. The trio has adapted ancient folk ballads into works with a more contemporary sound and in 2018, they were invited to appear at the Eaux Claires Festival founded by Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner.

The trio accomplish their goal of giving their own twist on ancient songs with this album. "The Roving" has gentle acoustic guitars and piano as Mitchell narrates being able to see the woman he loves slip away. "Blackwaterside" has both Mitchell and Johnson singing a story about sex, lies, and shame. The most notable chorus according to Paste Magazine is from "Magpie’s Nest" where there is "string-band magic" throughout the track. With 10 songs, this bundle of work is folk-pop excellence.
