Sorry for the long absence but we've got several new shows coming up.
Please join us for the return of the wonderful ELLIS on Oct 6
then Edie Carey on Nov 24.
There’s just something about Ellis. She is at once funny and wise, thoughtful and uninhibited,
and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. After her recent appearance on A
Prairie Home Companion, Ellis’ music charted in the Folk Top 100 in iTunes and Folk Top 20 on
Amazon.com. She also received hundreds of messages from strangers including, "you exude pure
joy", "I heard you and fell in love" and “I was stopped in my tracks by your music and captivating
laugh” as well as "Yours is a voice we all need to hear.” Ellis’ performances are transformational;
she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.
A winner of several awards and honors, Ellis has been recognized both for her songwriting skills
as well as her engaging performances. Many folk festivals have “audience choice” awards, and
Ellis has claimed those honors at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, and Sisters Folk
Festival. She also won the Midwest Mountain Stage New Song Contest (US) in 2011 and the
award for the Just Plain Folks (International) Best Female Singer Songwriter Album in 2009.
LIVE CD: WHEREVER YOU ARE (ONE NIGHT, TWO SETS, THREE CDS)
Wherever You Are is a joyful collection of songs and stories. The live three-disc CD package
features two full sets recorded live in the same night at the White Bear Unitarian Universalist
Church in Mahtomedi, Minnesota.
The first two discs encompass her sets that night in order, no songs cut and including stories,
laughter, and applause. The third disc includes ten of the song tracks without the banter or
applause to provide an alternative listening experience. The live show was recorded by Rob
Genadek and mixed at the Brewhouse in Minneapolis.
WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT ELLIS…

every single time." — Dale Schiff, Just Out Magazine

[you'll fall] in love with her bubbling attitude for life, and her captivating laugh has been echoing in
my heart all week!" — Ron Olesko, WFDU Public Radio
Ellis takes all the elements of life & distills them into introspective songs that embrace our
complicated human existence. How does it feel? Amazing.” — Crystal Sarakas, WSKG Public Radio
“Ellis, I heard you on PHC last night & fell in love from the first sound. You are special, a blessing,
and it shows in every word and note you sing.” — Fan Guestbook post, ellis-music.com
