Locals Elora’s Garden – including support from pals Casual Cries For Help – celebrate the release of a new album with a show at The Carleton on Friday, June 17th. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $15 + HST.
Elora’s Garden creates music in a category all its own, with a mix of alt rock, indie, folk, punk rock, and a hint of funk. Audiences are taken away by the originality, dynamics, and variety of music the band puts out.
Singer/Guitar player Alec Robertson has been writing songs since the age of twelve. In 2019, he met drummer Alec Bloch, who brought energetic and technical percussion skills to Robertson’s original songs. The two played open mics and developed a following playing original music in Wolfville, eventually starting to play sold-out shows in bars across Nova Scotia. Soon after, bass player Jordan Dunham joined the band, adding a powerful and funky low end to the group. During the pandemic, lead guitar player Ayden Clarke became the musical cherry on top of the existing group, with interesting licks and mouth-watering solos.
