For the first time, 3rd Elephant – an up and coming strings trio – is coming to the Music Factory!

The music of 3rd Elephant is a rich blend of traditions, drawing on the diverse musical backgrounds of its members. Violinist Nathan Wilson, and cellist Charles Asch, hold master’s degrees in classical performance for their primary instruments, while banjoist and composer Benji Flaming is a veteran of the bluegrass and folk music scene.

During the course of a 3rd Elephant concert, classical compositions, hymns, and ethnic folk melodies may share the stage with jazz standards, soundtracks, and original music, as the musicians use violin, cello, banjo, guitar, mandolin, and other instruments, to explore boundaries and find new harmony between musical territories.

Tickets are $25.00 in advance and $30.00 at the door. Seating is general admission and doors open at 6:30 PM. Concessions will be available for sale during the concert.

The Music Factory is located on the 2nd floor of the WWI era Old Milk Factory on the Rum River in Anoka. It is not a wheelchair accessible building and there are some stairs to climb.
