ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aaron Strumpel: Elephant Trio, The George Fox University Session

Magic still happens…it was sunny in Oregon when I picked up my friend and fiddler Cameron Schenk in Portland and drove the forty-five minutes to Newberg to meet Nolan Staples, the brilliant upright bass player at George Fox University. We descended into the video studio on campus and began an impromptu session on three songs from the acclaimed Elephants record. Little did we know or expect that there was going to be a birthing of an orchestra within that little space in that little window of time. I sincerely hope these songs get you the way the originals did, the plodding, heavy, dogged heart of the Elephant pushing you further into your journey, one more day through the wilderness.

*This Session was made possible by the sponsorship of George Fox University and specifically, the Center For Peace and Justice directed by Clint Baldwin. Aaron Strumpel spent the Fall Semester of 2012 as their Artist Practitioner in Residence. See the following websites for more information on the University, Center, and Strumpel's position:
