Ellyot H. Ray / Press

“5.) Strip down The first of several free upcoming acoustic performances will take place 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Red Mill Museum Village, 56 Main St., Clinton. 908-735-4101, theredmill.org Listen to the sounds of folk/blues guitarist Ellyot H. Ray.”

“Red Mill Offers New Acoustic Music Sessions will enjoy live acoustic performances on Sundays this winter. February 5th and introduce the soulful sounds of Ellyot H. Ray. Following sessions will be held on March 4 and April 1 from 1:00-3:00 PM. In 2008, the standard "6 strings" slipped out of his hands, when he started to perform open-tuning folk and blues on his Weissenborn lap-slide guitar. As a young man, Ray was influenced by the works of the French Romantic Poets. A touch of those poetry readings remains in his writing and reveals how he attaches great importance to the sounds and meanings of words. Sliding from dark-blues to acoustic soul, yet within the realm of lyrical folk music, Ray is sometimes difficult to define and nearly impossible to put in a box. Although he perceives himself as more of a poet, a traveler, a curious soul, he manages to melt his influences and background history, and sings and plays beautiful melodies while telling enchanting stories.”

“Pictured left, in this post, is friend and musician Ellyot H. Ray. This photo was taken December, 15, 2011, at Pearly Bakers in Easton, PA. He played along with Dave Cahill. Both of these guys are incredible singer/songwriters that are strong lyricists, as well as remarkable and gifted guitar players. These two are no joke. Their approach to music is one of deep love and a quest for their next level of discovery, along with flowing abilities. Both artists also play the Lehigh Valley on a consistent basis. Dave Cahill has the most kickass band called The Almighty Terribles, wherein he plays guitar and sings lead vocals. Nate Powell plays bass guitar and Ryan Decker is on the drums. All three in this band are tight and create great music. I highly recommend getting out and hearing all of these guys live and to get a disc or download. I will have an album posted from last night soon. More than anything, I’m proud to call all of these gentlemen my friends.”
