WE DREAM DAWN & Taarka

Apr 14, 2017

WE DREAM DAWN quickly grew from a distant dream into a new life when Sage Cook decided to take leave from Elephant Revival, a neo-folk quintet he had helped found in 2006. Fueled by lofty ideals about approaching art while living closer to the land, this new project is honing in on a new sort of American dream. “We are hoping to be growing most of our own food in a few years, because I feel most of the worlds problems are systemic of the way we cultivate our food and medicine” Sage states.

Described by SF Weekly as a “collision of Django Reinhardt and David Grisman,” TAARKA is the new acoustic “supergroup” (Flagstaff Live) “presenting masterfully deep Americana and gypsy jazz string band music!” Led by the husband-and-wife team of David Pelta-Tiller (mandolin, tenor guitar, vocals) and Enion Pelta-Tiller (five-string violin, vocals) and bassist Troy Robey, and lately our forth member has been either master guitarist Grant Gordy (David Grisman Quintet), or the impeccable guitarist Ross Martin (Matt Flinner Trio)
