San Fermin

Vintage Cafe Refocuses On The Artful Pop Of San Fermin

Our Vintage Cafe is one from earlier this year with San Fermin. San Fermin was originally a concept written, arranged and orchestrated by Ellis Ludwig-Leone that became a band. Ellis had used what he learned earning a music degree from Yale to write, orchestrate, and subsequently cast and record the work that became San Fermin's first album. He spent time on a fellowship in Banff, Alberta creating the work. Ellis got his friends including Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig who later became the band Lucius to perform. The band is named after the festival of San Fermin held every July in Pamplona that includes the “running of the bulls.”
