Sunday, April 8, 2012
Singer/songwriter Ellis Paul will stop by Tell Us A Tale this Easter day for some conversation and live music. In town for a concert with Peyton Tochterman at the Jefferson Theater on April 7, Ellis will hang around town to chat about his latest children's CD, Hero in You, with Tell Us A Tale host Peter.
Ellis Paul is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet, troubadour and father of two daughters, originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine, whose career began in the Boston new folk scene. He is the recipient of 13 Boston Music Awards, second only to multi-platinum act Aerosmith. The Boston Globe heralds him as a “songwriter’s songwriter;” Performing Songwriter says, “He combines the sensibilities of Bob Dylan and Bill Morrisey and delivers it with passion that sets him apart in the company of a new breed of songwriters.” Dirty Linen magazine says Paul is “one of contemporary folk music's most influential voices" and the St. Paul Pioneer Press calls him “one of the best songwriters of the past decade.” Ellis’ 2007 family music release The Dragonfly Races, won a Parents’ Choice award and sold nearly 10,000 copies.
