Renowned songwriter and two-time Folk Grammy nominee Eliza Gilkyson has announced the follow-up to her critically acclaimed political masterpiece 2020, which topped the U.S. folk radio charts and earned Eliza the Best Song of the Year award from the Folk International Alliance. She describes her new album Songs From the River Wind as her love letter to the Old West.
As always, Eliza has enlisted top-notch musicians for the sessions, including Warren Hood on fiddle, Kym Warner on mandolin and Michael Hearne on vocals. On Songs from the River Wind, Eliza plays old and new originals, select cover songs that fit the theme, and a few arrangements of time-honored cowboy tunes adapted to a female perspective, including Buffalo Gals Redux and The Colorado Trail.
