Seattle’s Cahalen Morrison and Eli West are two of the most exciting roots musicians we’ve heard in years. The pair stopped by the FJ offices just before the release of their 2014 record I’ll Swing My Hammer With Both My Hands to perform this tune, “Fiddlehead Fern.” I’ll Swing My Hammer is out February 4 and was produced by Tim O’Brien. We can’t recommend it enough.
Morrisson is playing an Enoch Tradesman banjo while West is using a 1942 Martin 5-17T tenor guitar. Read more about the duo via their website here.
