  • November 21, 2012

Our Lady of the Tall Trees from Cahalen Morrison and Eli West continues to blend old time folk, country and bluegrass with a dynamic freshness that holds your attention from start to finish over the course of an album. Our Lady of the Tall Trees is comprised of captivating narrative songs that showcase the interplay between instruments with Morrison on clawhammer banjo, mandolin and lap steel and West on guitar, bouzouki and also on clawhammer banjo. The tracks on the album are all finely crafted, with the most notable being the title track, the driving “Stone to Sand”, the stunning “A Lady Does Not Often Falter”, and their cover Townes Van Zandt’s “Loretta.” Together the duo make the perfect musical pair, with their vocals and interconnected instrumentation combining together in great harmony and emotional resonance.
