Sounds From a Safe Harbour presents Bonny Light Horseman with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra

The timeless qualities of traditional tunes can carry us across oceans and eons, linking us not only to the past but to each other as well. It was under the banner of those eternal connections that the trio of Bonny Light Horseman came together. Comprised of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson, and Josh Kaufman— mixing the ancient, mystical medium of transatlantic traditional folk music with a contemporary, collective brush. The resulting album, Bonny Light Horseman, is an elusive kind of sonic event: a bottled blend of lightning and synergy that will excite fans of multiple genres, eras, and ages.

Bonny Light Horseman with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra will see the European premiere of these songs brought to new life again – conducted by Robert Ames, with orchestral arrangements by Bryce Dessner.
