The intimate performance venue of the Franklin Square Black Box is just her style and complements the way her songs draw the listener in. The Penny Collector is soulful and reverent, with good reason: the album was released just over a month ago, and recorded after her father’s passing and her daughter's birth.
This unique album inspired Elmore Magazine’s Lee Zimmerman to say, “The lingering sadness is pervasive throughout, making Elkin’s hushed, mournful delivery both affecting and embracing. Plaintive and reflective, the music seems to flow from the core of Elkin’s soul, casting a quiet haze that’s often barely above a whisper.”
This will be her fourth time visiting Festival Theatre, her first since 2014. She comes again with her musical partner and husband Danny Schmidt. Tickets are $26 and can be purchased at FestivalTheatre.org, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the box office at 715-483-3387.
