Cahalen and Eli perform in house concert

Renowned Seattle duo Cahalen and Eli will appear in a house concert on Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 7-9 p.m. at the home of Paul Blackburn, 401 Montello St. in Hood River.

Cahalen Morrison and Eli West are two of the most innovative and subtle roots musicians today. Their music draws from old folk sources, but it sounds vibrantly alive.

Morrison writes songs that sound like a Cormac McCarthy novel: simple, beautifully crafted and seemingly formed from raw natural elements.

West brings jagged, angular arrangements based in bluegrass and old-time, but refracted through a 21st century lens.

Together, they tap the root of the old country and bluegrass duets. As the sparse landscapes of Morrison’s vocals reflect the warm glow of West’s voice, it’s clear that this duo was made to sing together.

Seating is limited. Advance reservations are recommended. Contact Tina Castañares at tina. to guarantee a seat. Tickets are $15.
