Astral folk outfit Bonny Light Horseman (comprising of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson, and Josh Kaufman) is mixing the ancient, mystical medium of transatlantic traditional folk music with a contemporary, collective brush. Mitchell met the indie rock stalwart Johnson a few years back through Twitter. Best known for the Fruit Bats project he has helmed for two decades as well as for stints in The Shins and Califone, Johnson had been friends with producer and instrumentalist Kaufman (Craig Finn, Josh Ritter, The National, Bob Weir) for 10 years. Each musician brought their own musical ideas to the rehearsals and the direction toward traditional songs from the British Isles emerged quickly. “I think it’s fair to say we are all inspired by traditional music in different ways,” Mitchell says. “We wanted to rework old songs but not in a ‘research project’ way. The emotions, the feeling of momentousness, the openness—even the chords being in open tuning—we wanted everything to be wide open. It was very healing to delve into these old stories and images that have existed for so long that you can rest in them".
