With a shelf full of Boston Music Awards, Ellis Paul returns to the Me&Thee for an evening of intimate, provocative and romantic tales. A troubadour, a folky, a storyteller, Paul has been a force on the scene since 1993 with his independent debut, “Say Something,” which was produced by Bill Morrissey.
Ellis Paul is the quintessential songwriter who has released close to two dozen albums. With a tattoo of Woody Guthrie worn proudly on his arm, his commitment to Guthrie’s legacy led to his inclusion in a ten-day celebration of Woody’s work held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an event that included Bruce Springsteen, Billy Bragg, the Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco. He later headlined at the first Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma.
In the words of Guthrie’s daughter Nora: “In times like these, when so many nuts are running the show, it’s comforting to know that Ellis Paul is actually holding our sanity on his own stage! Wise, tender, brilliant and biting, Ellis is one of our best human compasses.”
