Featured Performers: Ordinary Elephant
International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year Ordinary Elephant captivates audiences with their emotionally powerful and vulnerable songs. Their music lets the listener know that they are not alone in this world.
The collaboration of husband and wife Pete and Crystal Damore, their connection, and their influences (Gillian Welch, Guy Clark, Anais Mitchell) all meet on stage. “Two become one, in song. Hand-in-glove harmonies surprise the listener with focused intensity and musical mastery,” says Mary Gauthier. The Associated Press calls their latest album, Honest, “one of the best Americana albums of the year.”
What others are saying
“There is nothing at all ordinary with this elephant. They are smack dab in the tradition that I have always loved but have both (all four?) feet in the 21st Century. This is rich ground. Listen!” ~ Tom Paxton
“I’m a big fan…intimate songs, weaving harmonies, and stories that draw you in as if you were gathered around an enchanted campfire.” ~ Eliza Gilkyson
