About this event

Back by popular demand, singer-songwriter Ellis Paul will appear at the UUCB Concerts for a Cause concert series on May 6, 2023 at 7:30. Paul is an astute storyteller, poetic and literate, with a stellar stage presence.

 

Some artists document their lives through their music. Others chronicle their times. It’s a rare artist who can do both, telling their own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall. Few others, for whatever genius they may possess, can relate their own history to the history experienced by those who find that common bond, be it in a coming of age, living through the same realities or sharing similar experiences.

 

Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters. Though some may refer to him as a folk singer, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. The exhilaration of the open road. A celebration of heroes. The hope for redemption. Descriptions of those things that are both near and dear. The sharing of love..., intimate, passionate and enduring.

 

A benefit concert for the Brunswick Area Teen Center and for Maine Family Planning.


“Despite his success and sense of history, [Ellis] remains an artist with his eye on the future and an interest in discovering the transformative potential of his music.”
                                                   -The New York Times
 
“…one of the defining voices of American songwriting.”
                                                                -Direct Current
