About Ordinary Elephant: 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.”
About K.C. Clifford: K.C. Clifford is a three-time Woody Guthrie Award-winning folk singer/songwriter from Oklahoma City. Music has always been a guiding force in Clifford’s life, and her talent and love of performing on stage revealed itself at an early age. She was two when she first sang in public and composed her first song at age seven. Early influences included artists such as Paul Simon, Carole King, The Beach Boys and the popular bluegrass band Mountain Smoke, founded by her father in the late 1960s.
K.C.’s latest release, “The Tag Hollow Sessions,” was written in seclusion, at a remote Northeast Oklahoma cabin by Lake Spavinaw in an area known as Tag Hollow. The cabin – named Gleneyrie after her paternal grandmother, Glennes – was built by her great-grandparents in 1933. Clifford retreated to Gleneyrie following months of intense nationwide touring in support of her 2010 album, Orchid. The solitude reenergized her creative spirit. The cabin and its history became her muse.
