Finally, HPPR was able to get the fabulous folk duo Ordinary Elephant into the studio for a live set! Pete Damore & Crystal Hariu-Damore brought their guitars and banjo into our downtown Amarillo studio and played a few songs for the High Plains. Such incredible songwriters! If you missed it, please check this out.

Well, it finally happened! I've been hoping we could get Ordinary Elephantin the studio on High Plains Morning for all of our listeners since I first started playing their debut album. And this week, we were thrilled to welcome Pete Damore & Crystal Hariu-Damore into the studio for a short howdy and three lovely songs, two of which will be on their upcoming album (which is "in a cocoon," at present). They played Woody Guthrie Folk Music Center in Pampa, TX on Thursday night, and we're hoping they'll be back through for some more shows in early March (SO CHECK THEIR WEBSITEFOR UPDATES!).
