ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
KIRK ELLIOTT

Kirk Elliott is a musician and composer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He has a Bachelor of Music degree from Queen's University in Kingston, where he studied violin, electronic and early music. After graduating, Kirk formed an acoustic music ensemble called SHORT TURN. This eclectic trio performed on national radio and television and recorded two albums, one of which won a JUNO AWARD.

In 1985, a Canada Council Arts Award enabled Kirk to attend the National Choreographic Seminar at Simon Fraser University. Working in his own studio with a diverse collection of musical instruments from around the world, he has since composed, recorded and performed music for the National Ballet, the National Film Board, the Discovery Channel, Danny Grossman Dance, the Toronto Consort, and CBC radio and television.

Kirk traveled throughout Canada and the United States for 15 years playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, accordion, flute, harp, bass, bagpipes, percussion and trombone with Sharon, Lois and Bram's Elephant Show, appearing at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Palace Theatre on Broadway, and Paramount Studios in Los Angeles.

Additional musical studies have included master classes on renaissance and baroque violin with Monica Huggett, Jean Lamon (Tafelmusik), David Douglas (The King's Noyse), and traditional Scottish fiddle repertoire with Sandy McIntyre (Cape Breton Symphony), as well as lute and lute song classes with Paul Odette and Julianne Baird. Kirk's seven CDs of instrumental music include elements of medieval, renaissance, celtic, bluegrass, classical, eastern, and pop music, with guest artists such as Don Ross, Erica Goodman, Carlos del Junco and Don Rooke (The Henrys).

In 2005 Marshmellow Records released “Up From The Ground”, a colourful collection of thought provoking music featuring classical and steel string guitar and everything from the dulcimer to the cittern together to create a warm, exiting album.
