Flying in from the USA Elana James was one of the brightest stars of the 2008 Port Fairy Folk Festival.

We know Elana James has played with Bob Dylan and Willy Nelson and she has a list of admirers including The Washington Times who have said "Not unlike fellow Texan Norah Jones, Miss James is fiercely traditional, and yet oozes an effortless contemporary charm. Her bow work, sweet and nimble, references Western swing legend Bob Wills and jazz master Stephane Grappelli and she can purr like Nancy Sinatra".

Elana and her trio-- comprised of Whit Smith and Jake Erwin have been touring the world, and when they took to the stage at Port Fairy we were treated to a fabulous performance of her violin virtuosity. Whit Smith makes his guitar sing and Jake Erwin (to quote Cab Calloway) certainly knows how to slap the base around!.

This is Elana Jame’s first Australian Performance and judging by the response it won’t be her last, this is your chance to hear what the critics are raving about.

If you were at her Port Fairy performance you know it was one of the brightest shows on Stage Three and if this download doesn’t put a smile on your face you are not really trying.
