Eli West: Angular Phrasing & Non-Traditional Improvisation

Eli West has been just been confirmed as support for Mandolin Orange at The Top Hat on April 6, 2017. Eli is a Seattle-based multi-instrumentalist. With an interest in angular phrasing and non-traditional improvisation within the historic precedents of bluegrass and old-time music, his guitar playing has been called both unique and strong.

Eli released a solo record in 2016 called The Both, including duets with Bill Frisell, Dori Freeman and John Reischman, and three records as half of the new/old-time duo Cahalen Morrison & Eli West.  He also collaborates regularly with Ben Winship, Joe Walsh, and Norwegian fiddler Olav Mjelva, among others.

Tickets for the upcoming April 6th performance with Mandolin Orange are on sale now at The Top Hat, online or by calling (877) 987-6487. More information on the performance can also be found here.
