Hooray! June 1 I will be traveling to Ann Arbor, MI. Thank you to Garrison Keillor and the entire APHC crew for asking me back!
Great news! I'll be on the main stage this year at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival!
Thank you Planet Bluegrass!
I was born and raised in Texas, and I've been wanting a reason to go to Kerrville. So, this spring I applied to the Kerrville New Folk Contest, and I got in! I'll be there Memorial Day weekend!
Here's a nice preview for the CD release show on March 29th!
Ellis at the Cedar Friday, March 29th
Talk about a comeback: Twin Cities folk mainstay Ellis took time off to spend with her daughter, Ruby, and on her return she faced a few million listeners at a well-received “A Prairie Home Companion” appearance in February. That made a nice set-up for her new live collection, “Wherever You Are,” featuring 18 songs on two CDs recorded over two sets in one night at White Bear Lake Unitarian Universalist Church, plus a third disc of the same show minus the stage banter. The Texas-reared balladeer’s divine voice shines in the holy setting, and the approach provides a greatest-hits overview of her growing canon of passionate, personal songs. (Chris Riemenschneider)
