Indie Acoustic Quintet Elephant Revival Announces Spring Tour
Following a fabulous 2012, indie acoustic quintet Elephant Revival is ready to bring even more fans into their musical fold with a spring tour launching March 21 at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Ga., and wrapping April 27 at the Norman Music Festival in Norman, Okla. (See schedule below.)
The band is stopping at several iconic venues during its current winter tour as well, including Club Passim in Cambridge, Mass., and Joe’s Pub in New York City. They’re also showcasing at the 25th annual International Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto, and still basking in the glow of positive reviews for their November EP release, IT’S ALIVE. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman labeled their music “very fine” and gave the band two consecutive “Friday Night Music” mentions on his blog. With his second video post, of their song, “What Is Time,” he added, “If this doesn’t make you smile, something is wrong with you.”
Elephant Revival are: Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe and musical saw); Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola and vocals); Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals); Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar and vocals); and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). Fans can follow the band and watch for performance updates on twitter @elephantrevival; at facebook.com/elephantrevival or at elephantrevival.com.
