The five-piece, acoustic band based in Nederland, Colo., appreciates music for its universality. The band — Sage Cook (banjo, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, bass and fiddle), Bridget Law (fiddle), Bonnie Paine (washboard, djembe, musical saw and stomp box), Daniel Rodriguez (guitar, banjo and bass) and Dango Rose (double bass, mandolin and banjo) — plays a diverse but original repertoire that contains elements of Celtic, folk, psychedelic, country, indie rock, reggae, jazz and hip-hop.

The eclectic quintet will perform at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, at Adelante! Gallery & Tea House, 88 N. Main St., Ashland.

Tickets in advance are $15 and $20 at the door. Call 541-488-0290 or see www.elephantrevival.com.
