ELLIS PAUL
Sat., Feb. 8, 2020, 7:30 p.m.

“Despite his success and sense of history, Mr. Paul remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential in his music.” The New York Times

Though some may refer to him as a folk singer, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. ~ No Depression

“Ellis is a skillful songwriter and engaging performer. She is at once innocent and wise, contemplative and impulsive. Her voice is captivating and perfectly suited to her inspiring lyrics. All of these accolades are important, but more important than any of them is the fact that Ellis is a good and generous soul and that this is everywhere apparent in her music as you will surely discover should you choose to join us for what will seem like the chance meeting of a long-lost and cherished friend.” ~ RiverFolk Concerts at the Cooperage
