LilFest Presents: “The World Ain’t Slowin’ Down: Ellis Paul Celebrates 25 Years on the Road”
Ellis Paul is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, poet and troubadour originally hailing from a potato farming family in northern Maine. He is the recipient of thirteen Boston Music Awards, second only to multi platinum act Aerosmith. Since launching from Boston, Ellis Paul has built a vast catalog of music which weds striking poetic imagery and philosophical introspection with hook-laden melodies.
The Boston Globe heralds him as a “songwriter’s songwriter” saying “no emerging songwriter in recent memory has been more highly touted and respected by songwriters.” USA Today’s national feature on Ellis was titled, “Best Bet for Stardom” which has come true after years of non-stop touring. He has shared the stage with such notable artists as John Mayer, Bill Morrisey, Shawn Colvin, and John Gorka early on and quickly progressed to headlining concerts and festivals.
WHEN: The show starts Friday, October 13th at 7:30 pm, doors open for seating at 7:15 pm.
COST: $20 General admission / $50 for Patrons / $5 for students. You can purchase tickets in person or online. To purchase tickets online click here.
