Folk singer-songwriter Ellis Paul will perform in concert with special guest Dawn Landes at 8 PM on Saturday, November 2, at Cotuit Center for the Arts.
Carrying on the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, Maine native Ellis Paul has become a leading figure in what has become known as the Boston school of songwriting: a literate, provocative, and urbane folk-rock-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990s.
His performances have been described as charismatic and authentic and his songs have appeared in movies and on television, including three Farrelly brothers films. He appeared with the all-star Woody Guthrie tribute tour, “Ribbon of Highway, Endless Skyway,” and he wrote a modern musical setting of Guthrie’s unpublished lyric, “God’s Promise,” for his CD, “The Speed of Trees.”
Dawn Landes is a singer-songwriter and musician originally from Louisville, Kentucky. She has released five albums. Her songs have also been featured in films and TV shows, including “Bored to Death,” “Skins,” “House,” “Gossip Girl,” and “United States of Tara.”
Tickets are $30, $25 for members, and $27 for seniors. For tickets, visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Falmouth Road (Route 28) in Cotuit.
