Bonny Lightman Horseman X LCO
Address: Barbican Centre
Silk Street, London
Folk trio Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson and Josh Kaufman perform their loving ode to the past, Bonny Light Horseman, as well as new material. Joined by the London Contemporary Orchestra and conducted by Robert Ames, this show is the UK premier of these brand new arrangements.
Beginning their musical experiment together in 2018, the trio were soon after invited to perform at the Eaux Claires festival by its co-founders, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (The National). Encouraged by the natural, intuitive bond they felt while writing together, each musician brought their own musical ideas to the rehearsals. The direction toward traditional songs from the British Isles emerged quickly, culminating in the self-titled Bonny Light Horseman followed by their 2022 album Rolling Golden Holy, described as ‘impeccably crafted’ by UNCUT.
