He first appeared on the New Moon stage during it's inaugural season—25 years ago. Since then Ellis Paul has grown and flourished. He’s won 14 Boston Music Awards (only Aerosmith has earned more). And his songs are heard on TV--in shows, commercials, and documentaries--and in the soundtracks of several films. Director Peter Farrelly has called him "a national treasure."
Paul performs at the New Moon Coffeehouse on Saturday March 16th at 8:00 pm. The coffeehouse is located in the Universalist Unitarian Church, 16 Ashland St, Haverhill MA. Admission to the show is $20; $10 for those ages 18 and under.
Paul is the leading voice in American songwriting. His charismatic, authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk. "I feel like I'm more a part of a community now than just a songwriter singing about my own struggles and the struggles of the friends I see around me," Paul says of his career today. "Maybe that's the difference between being a singer-songwriter and being a folk musician, that transition into more of a community sense of writing."
Opening musician Jim Trick says he’s “excited to be sharing an evening with one of the greatest performing songwriters of our time.” Trick is a magnetic and engaging performer. For the last twenty years he has melded his original brand of alt-folk / solo acoustic rock with motivational life lessons. Trick’s concert appearances are intimate and with disarming humor and transparency he is able to instantly connect with his audience.
Come hear these fantastic musicians. Tickets for this show are available at the door starting around 6:30; doors open at 7:30. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org, or by calling 978-459-5134.
The New Moon Coffeehouse is a nonprofit, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting and enjoying the creative talents of acoustic performers. We strive to bring you the best performers in a relaxing, friendly, smoke and alcohol free environment, where you can enjoy a great show, fair trade coffee, and awesome desserts. Bring your own mug and the coffee is only $1.00 for the evening.
The easiest way to get to the coffeehouse is to take 495 to exit 51A (Route 125 South). Stay on Route 125 South for about 1.5 miles. At intersection of Routes 125 & 110, look left for a red brick church. Turn left onto Kenoza Ave (aka Rte 110). Then right into church driveway. There are 2 parking lots available behind the church, on both sides of Ashland St. The coffeehouse entrance is also there, at the back of the church.
