Ellis Paul

Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90’s. His charismatic, personally authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk. www.ellispaul.com/

Paul Geremia

For almost forty years, Paul Geremia has survived solely by the fruits of his musical labors. Geremia has built a reputation as a first rate bluesman, songwriter, a “scholar” of early jazz and blues, and one of the best country blues finger pickers ever, with his tools, six and twelve-string guitars, harmonica, piano and a husky soulful voice. With an innate sense of the humor as well as the drama of the music, he keeps traditional blues fresh and alive with his performances. www.paulgeremia.org/
