BONNY LIGHT HORSEMAN – ” Rolling Golden Holy ” Best Albums Of 2022

Posted: October 6, 2022 in MUSIC

‘Rolling Golden Holy’ is the second album by Bonny Light Horseman. The alt. folk trio consists of singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman and Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats. Their self-titled debut was a beautifully performed set of ancient folk songs. On their second outing, the songs are all original but are formed with the same folk heart and history running through their construction.

Bonny Light Horseman’s debut was a folk masterclass, re-imagining centuries-old standards with effortless grace and wonder. Those Grammy-nominated, list-topping songs not only suggested renewed possibilities for aging songbooks but also marked the arrival of a trio fully capable of reorienting the wider folk landscape. “Rolling Golden Holy” marks their return with preternatural beauty, charm, and imagination. This is a band working at the edge of modern folk. The band thrives in rendering fresh wisdom and insight from old models, whether scraps of ancient songs or the spark of entwined voices. Theirs is a space created for sharing, learning, risking, singing, and playing as one.

The new album is the band’s testament to interdependence, partnership, and trust at a moment when we crave such connections so much. Anaïs Mitchell, Josh Kaufman and Eric D. Johnson as a trio fully appreciate what they have found in one another through Bonny Light Horseman; on “Rolling Golden Holy”, we get to live inside that magic, too.
