Ordinary Elephant & Honest Mechanik
March 24 @ 7:00 PM CDT
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 is calling their latest album, Honest, “one of the best Americana albums of the year.”
We are Honest Mechanik, an indie-pop duo born in the wilds of Medford, MA. We’re also Susan Cattaneo and Paul Hansen. Featuring quirky lyrics and ear-worm melodies, Honest Mechanik has the vibe of The Velvet Underground paired with the intimacy of Belle and Sebastian.
