Silver Skate Festival

Edmonton-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Elliot Thomas emerges with a heart heavy with the blues, ears ringing with the sound of the banjo, and an insatiable yearning for new sonic landscapes that has led him to a poetic and soulful style all of his own. Endowed with a distinctively rich and expressive voice, and a pioneering spirit, Elliot draws inspiration from folk, blues, and world music traditions, as well as from contemporary singer-songwriters, to craft a sound that is fresh and daring, yet hauntingly familiar.
