MUSIC: Ordinary Elephant Live-Stream Concert
October 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Ordinary Elephant was one of the terrific groups we had on the Grange Fall Music schedule. Since we can’t bring them to the Grange right now, we’re bringing them to your house! This is a special live-streamed performance by a fantastic duo. Don’t miss it!
International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year
Ordinary Elephant captivates audiences with their emotionally powerful and vulnerable songs, letting 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 (such as 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 called their latest album, Honest, “one of the best Americana albums of the year.”
Crystal and Pete will be performing live from their home in Louisiana, with songs and stories of their time on the road and they will take your song requests and questions, too. Your donations will go directly to the musicians. CLICK HERE for information on how to join the show.
