Elijah & the Moon Deliver the Folk-Rock Goods at Mountain Jam 2013
The folk-rock thing is all the rage these days, but Elijah & the Moon aren't your average Jeremiah-come-lately vest-wearing bandwagon jumpers. This fivesome from the Catskills, N.Y., write stomping tunes befitting of a rock band -- they just happen to play them on old-timey instruments. Friday afternoon, opening day two of Mountain Jam 2013, leader Elijah Wolf-Christensen and his merry gang of players served up tunes from their brand-new album 'The Lonesome World Beyond the Trees,' inspiring a fair bit of dancing in the mud pit in front of the stage. After Mountain Jam, the crew heads West -- as generations of young and ambitious folks before them have done -- and continues on a tour that will take them to Denver, Texas and points beyond.
