The Cottage Events Venue welcomes Ordinary Elephant for an evening of roots/folk music on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 7:00 PM. Awarded International Folk Music Awards Artist of the Year in 2017, 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. Stripped down, intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar, and hand-in-glove harmonies surprise the listener with focused intensity and musical mastery,” says Mary Gauthier. The Associated Press is calling their latest album, Honest, “one of the best Americana albums of the year.” Honest is currently ranked third on the Folk DJ and NACC Folk Charts.
"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
Admission is a suggested $15-$20 at the door, beverages and fresh baked pie will be available for purchase at intermission. The Cottage Events Venue is located at 2915 Row River Rd in Cottage Grove.
