Music at the Museum Concert Series welcomes the Texas singer songwriter duo Ordinary Elephant will perform on Thursday, July the 12th at 7:00 pm for the Music at the Museum Concert Series in the Illinois State Museum auditorium. International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year, Ordinary Elephant captivates listeners with their well-honed combination of insightful writing, effortless harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. The collaboration of husband and wife and their influences (such as Gillian Welch, Guy Clark, Anais Mitchell) all meet on stage."As genuine as it gets" says legendary Texas producer Lloyd Maines. 
 
Crystal and Pete Damore have been performing together since 2011. The duo was both a Kerrville New Folk Finalist and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2017, and their release 'Before I Go' was No. 7 on the Folk DJ Chart for the year. Pete's understated, melodic and mellow banjo weaves through Crystal's steady and clean rhythm guitar, and poetic lyrics are purposefully delivered in rich harmony, "like their voices were made to go together and we'd all feel deprived if for some reason they chose not to sing together." (Bill Aspinwall, Texas Music Journal)
 
Ordinary Elephant recorded their 2013 debut album 'Dusty Words & Cardboard Boxes' there, which garnered a nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 2014 Texas Music Awards. Today, they happily call the road home after shedding most of their possessions in 2014 to take on nomadic life. 

Music at the Museum is a monthly concert series produced by Chris Vallillo featuring the best in contemporary and traditional folk and acoustic music of all styles. Concerts are held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum auditorium. Free parking is available in the State lots near the Museum after 5:00 pm.
