A troubadour, a singer/songwriter, a folky, and a storyteller: Ellis Paul has embodied all of these well since emerging out of the fertile Boston music scene in the early 1990's. He now calls Charlottesville, VA home, and has a new release chronicling the life of a traveling troubadour and more, called "The Storyteller's Suitcase." He plays Isis in West Asheville, NC on Friday, then spends the week at the Swannanoa Gathering for Contemporary Folk Week.
