Bonny Light Horseman Share Cover of Tim Buckley’s “Buzzin’ Fly”


by Unknown

Bonny Light Horseman, made up of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson and Josh Kaufman, have shared a cover of Tim Buckley’s “Buzzin’ Fly.”

Proceeds from the song’s sales on Bandcamp will go toward the band’s touring members and crew to provide financial relief as COVID-19 continues to keep them off the road.

“I first heard this song when I was in my early 20s, on a mix cassette that my then-girlfriend’s cool older brother made me. I was instantly entranced—there was something so evocative about the arrangement, the transcendental and romantic lyrical imagery, and Buckley’s deeply soulful voice. I knew one of these days I’d cover it,” said Johnson via press release.

“Took me twenty-plus years to find the right situation to do it. Josh and Anaïs (and the stellar assemblage of players on this recording) took this song in a new direction that made me fall in love with it all over again. Long live buzzin’ flies, ringing mountains, flowing rivers, and seabirds who knew your name!”
