Ellis Paul Returns

Ellis Paul returns to the Duke City on April 1st hosted by the Art of the Song Coffeehouse at the Sol Acting Academy at 5500 San Mateo Blvd. NE (505-881-0975). This veteran, itinerant singer-songwriter will perform in the evening in concert, and will give a Family Show and conduct a Song Writing Workshop during the day.

Ellis Paul is a celebrated contemporary folk musician based in Boston, who has been on the road for over 25 years on the national and international touring circuit. He has over 20 recordings, and a children’s book. His songs have appeared in a number of films as well.

Paul’s 25th Anniversary Tour,

The World Ain’t Slowing Down

is a continuation of what he playfully calls the Never Ending Tour, as he has been on the road so long. Audiences in New Mexico can expect a one-man show that is a combination of storytelling, songwriting and humor. Paul continues to write songs in the quiet stretches of his traveling life, catching a chance on the airplane to craft lyrics, singing a melody into his smartphone in the car. He is an ongoing fountain of creativity, which we will benefit from in our state at the end of March in Las Cruces and Santa Fe, and on April 1st here in Buerque.
