Ellis Paul Concert Set for Henderson
The Lake Cherokee Concerts Series in Henderson presents singer-songwriterEllis Paul in Concert on January 12, 2014.
Tickets are $20 each. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7 p.m.
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 1990s.
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. Though he remains among the most pop-friendly of today’s singer-songwriters - his songs regularly appear in hit movie and TV soundtracks - he has bridged the gulf between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger more successfully than perhaps any of his songwriting peers.
The concert site is the fellowship hall at The Church at Lake Cherokee. 11968 FM 2011 East, just west of the intersection of FM 2011 and FM 1716, south of Lake Cherokee and about one mile east of the Silvey Bridge crossing.
