About Ellis Paul:

“Legendary” is not a word to be thrown around lightly, but in this case it is entirely appropriate. Ellis Paul doesn’t just write songs; he’s a guitar-carrying reporter who covers the human condition and details the hopes, loves, losses of those he observes, turning their stories into luminous pieces of music that get under your skin and into your bloodstream. Born and raised in Maine, Paul attended Boston College on a track scholarship and in the evenings became a fixture on the city’s open mic circuit. After winning a Boston Acoustic Underground songwriter competition, he caught the ear of folk luminary Bill Morrissey, who produced his indie album Say Something in 1993. This led to a seven-album contract with Rounder Records and the 1994 album, Stories.

His songs have appeared in several blockbuster films and have been covered by Grammy-award winning artists. Through a steady succession of albums of his own – a remarkable 23 releases so far – and a constant touring presence around the world, Paul’s audience has grown into a loyal legion of fans. Along the way, he has picked up an impressive number of awards including the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Award, 15 Boston Music Awards, An Honorary Doctorate from the University of Maine, the 2019 International Acoustic Music Awards Artist of the Year and most recently his album, “The Storyteller’s Suitcase,” was named the 2019 NERFA Album of the Year. (Listeners might remember that The Sundilla Radio Hour bestowed the same honor on “The Storyteller’s Suitcase,” and his most recent release, “55,” is garnering similar accolades.)

It's a special honor to present Ellis Paul, and a special honor deserves a special day. So join us on Sunday, November 26, for an unforgettable concert.
