Born in Maine, Ellis Paul is a key figure in what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting, a literate, provocative, and urbanely romantic folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s. His pop music songs have appeared in movies and on television, bridging the gap between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.

Tickets are on sale now, starting at just $25 USD and the Festival will be available for ticket purchasers to watch on demand for between 30-90 days post Festival.
