Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.  Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, 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.

Concerts for May, 2017


Friday, May 5th 
Lightnin' Wells

If acoustic country blues is your bag, nobody represents the genre better than North Carolina’s own Mike “Lightnin’” Wells. Wells started playing guitar and harmonica at an early age and was drawn to traditional blues and folk music. He performed publicly for the first time in the early ‘70’s in the Chapel Hill area and has since performed across the country and Europe. As well as performing himself, Wells has promoted the music of other traditional artists and produced the first commercial recordings by Big Boy Henry, Algia Mae Hinton, and George Higgs. Mark Coltrain writing for Kiving Blues magazine said, “You won’t find a more versatile musician around - able to move deftly between country blues, old-time banjo, and novelty tunes with a single pluck. Lightnin’ Wells changes the past...”
