showtime 8pm doors at 7pm The Rocky Mountains and Pacific northwest are as much home to great old-time music these days as the Appalachians and Atlantic coast ever were. Cahalen Morrison & Eli West bring a pair of clawhammer banjos (as well as their guitars, mandolins, and bouzoukis) to bear on The Holy Coming of the Storm, a set of 14 tunes that straddle that weird western folk line between bluegrass, country, and old-time string band music most famously blurred by Tim O’Brien. What they’ve produced here sounds as good musically as any of the traditional material in O’Brien’s catalog. Morrison, the primary songwriter, is also blessed with an ear for natural-sounding lyrics, and he has more than enough authenticity to get away with sticking almost entirely to many tried and true (or you could say “outdated” if you’re feeling less charitable) subjects like cowhands, the sea, and frontier living. That means that a couple anonymous and “genuinely” traditional songs can slip in unnoticed in the last moments of the album and you’d hardly know it without looking at the credits.
