Ordinary Elephant

Sunday, February 23, 2020 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Kitchen Sink


Santa Fe



Winner of the International Folk Music award for 2017 “Artist of the Year,” husband and wife duo Crystal and Pete Damore have been performing together as Ordinary Elephant since 2011. The duo’s sophomore release, Before I Go, produced at Santa Fe’s Kitchen Sink Studio, established them internationally. Their latest album, Honest, is widely lauded as one of the best Americana records of the year.

It was Gillian Welch’s playing that inspired the Ordinary Elephant sound: a well-honed combination of insightful writing, deft harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. From an early age, Pete has been a guitarist, but when Welch’s “Hard Times” came through his car stereo speakers, the banjo beckoned. Pete’s understated, melodic and mellow banjo weaves through Crystals steady and clean rhythm guitar as poetic lyrics are delivered in rich harmony. Today, they live full-time in a van with their dogs, traveling the country and spreading their musical message.
