Criss-crossing the country for 30 years, Ellis Paul just released his 20th album, The Storyteller’s Suitcase, the first self-produced. He says: “This album is more truly me than anything I’ve ever made.” Louise Mosrie will open
Ellis Paul · 8:30pm
A troubadour, a singer/songwriter, a folky, and a storyteller -- all are fair labels for this artist, but they do not quite suffice. However, the tattoo of Woody Guthrie worn proudly on his arm is a good starting place from which to grasp Ellis Paul, for it is from the Woody Guthrie tradition that he hails, and Maine as well. Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and James Taylor are also listed among his influences, and their spirits seem to occasionally grace his work. With an acoustic guitar in hand, he weaves intimate, provocative, and romantic tales of lives that were obviously witnessed by a most-talented voyeur.
Since coming onto the scene in 1993 with his independent debut, Say Something, Paul hasn't slowed or weakened as a performer or a writer. Spending two-thirds of most years on the road has helped him perfect both crafts, with a lot of practice on-stage and a lot of people whose stories he retells in song. In fact, his 1994 album Stories proved enchanting enough to secure him a deal with Rounder Records and a national following of dedicated fans.
Louise Mosrie · 8:30pm
Louise Mosrie got her start by taking top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriting contest and then went on to win or place at several other festival competitions including Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mtn. Folks Fest and Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. Her album, “Home”, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2010. Her latest album, ‘Lay It Down”, was arranged and produced by Cliff Eberhardt and landed on several “Best of” radio lists in 2014. She continues to tour widely as a solo artist and also with Eberhardt. “Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year.” – Rich Warren, WFMT-FM, The Midnight Special, Chicago
