Project Description

Eli Elkus is a traveling musical storyteller, songcraftsman, and folk activist. He began sculpting his craft as a young troubadour fishin’ for songs by the riversides and busking in the streets of New England. It was here that the love of folk music and storytelling found him, connecting with perfect strangers through story and song, weaving merit, meter and melody-making stories that play to each moment, bringing us back to the roots of true folk music – Music for the people, by the people. No frills and no red tape. The sorta thing that just don’t fit in a box. And so it went. The lazy-eyed dreamer and his familiar Bronco the hound wonder wander the US byways bringing folk music to the folks, freewheelin’ in their road sweet home – ‘JeBus’. When they’re not on the road, he and his partner in merriment & songwriting (and pirate journalist storyteller and sacred dancer in her own regard), Lara Wahl, spend their time growin’ gardens and lazy-eyed dreamin’ a slow movin’ dream at their sanctuary in the hills of Western Massachusetts… Just beyond the veil… Get the know about all things singin’, pickin’, & storytelling and sign up for the “Lazy-Eyed Newsletter” by emailing him at elielkus@gmail.com.
