Elephant Revival On Mountain Stage
Elephant Revival makes its second appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Formed in Colorado a decade ago, Elephant Revival draws on influences including Celtic, Americana and folk music. And, for those who wonder, the group is named after a pair of zoo elephants who, upon being separated after 16 years, died the same day.
The band's first professional release, Break In The Clouds, was named Best Album of 2011 by The Indie Acoustic Music Project; the third and most recent is last year's These Changing Skies. Multi-instrumentalists Bonnie Paine and Daniel Rodriguez share lead vocals, along with fiddler Bridget Law, bassist Dan Rose and banjo/pedal-steel player Charlie Rose.
