Elk Run + Riot

Elk Run + Riot Website

7:45 PM Stage

Since forming in 2013, Elk Run & Riot have made it their priority to write songs that reflect who they are and where they live. For the folk-rock outfit, that environment is Alberta’s Bow Valley in the Rocky Mountains, whose natural wonders greatly inspired the group’s third full-length album, Animalia.

On the eight new tracks, Elk Run & Riot continue to refine their songwriting with AOR-ready arrangements—ringing guitars, soaring harmonies and heartfelt melodies. Using a live-in-the-studio recording approach, the creative core of Ryan Schepens (vocals/guitar), Andrew Cotter (vocals/bass/guitar), Brian Bailey (mandolin/bass) struck the perfect balance between their finely honed musicianship and the dynamic live performances that broaden Elk Run & Riot’s audience with each show.
