Sunday, December 9th, 3 P.M.

Ellis continues our tradition of having him play a show for us during the holiday season with his 13th appearance in WUSB’s Sunday Street Series.

He'll help celebrate the holiday season with some new songs from a forthcoming album, The Storyteller’s Suitcase, his 2012 holiday album, City of Silver Dreams, and audience requests from his extensive catalogue. Ellis will be making full use of the Steinway concert piano he will have at his disposal. There are always surprises at an Ellis Paul show and you can expect a unique cover or two of songs from other writers.

From his emergence on the Boston music scene in 1990, Ellis has won a devout following for his well-crafted songs and his passionate, high energy stage presentation and his distinctive voice. As Kristian Bush, of the duo Sugarland has said, "Ellis has a voice that is so powerful you know who it is the second he comes through your radio." (www.ellispaul.com)
