Plan9 Music

Elixir's second recording Rampant features 12 tracks of daring acoustic music as the band stretches out to develop it's unique sound and tackle some bold repertoire. From blazing French Canadian reels to beautiful waltzes, from spicy originals to classic songs, Rampant is a wild ride of musical goodness. The band is joined by Will Patton and Garrett Sawyer on bass. Elixir is a high energy dance band and caller combination that blends superb calling, driving fiddle and guitar playing, and the rich texture and rhythmic excitement of a full horn section. Elixir performs tightly crafted music drawing on a wide range of styles and evoking a variety of moods. Elegant melodies evolve into raucous dixieland horn riffs; transcendent harmonies, playful improvisations, and rock, swing and reggae-inspired rhythms weave in and out of traditional and original Irish, French Canadian and New England tunes. Elixir plays for dances, festivals, camps, weddings and other events, with a repertoire that includes music for contra, square, English and swing dancing; waltzing; couples dancing; and concert programs. Elixir is: Nils Fredland, calling / trombone / vocals Ethan Hazzard-Watkins, fiddle Jesse Readlynn, trumpet / flugelhorn Anna Patton, clarinet / vocals Owen Morrison, guitar / foot percussion Since it's start in 2005, Elixir has evolved a sound that combines musical innovation with strong danceability, and has quickly become popular with dancers and audiences all over the country. In 2007 the band recorded a short four-track CD (now out of print), and in 2008 released their first full-length recording entitled Super Tonic. Their 2010 album Rampant has garnered praise from dancers and listeners alike. Please visit elixirmusic.com for more info, a performance schedule and much more.
