Ellis Paul + Peter Mulvey

Naked Soul

Friday, November 6, 2015
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

With an engaging conversational style, Ellis Paul delivers his tunes in a high, clear voice that gets you right in the heart. He tells touching and tender stories in songs that meld a pop sensibility with an abiding respect for the storytelling tradition of masters like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. His finely chiseled, deeply humane songs have won him more than a dozen Boston Music Awards. He’s released 18 albums in his twenty-year career, including, most recently, a children’s album, A Hero for You, and a holiday album, City of Silver Dreams, that the website No Depression calls “a collection with multi-faceted personality, offering both melodic romanticism and a folk styled humor that twinkles with good natured fun.”

The Irish Times calls Peter Mulvey “a joy to see” and “a phenomenal performer with huge energy, a quick-fire, quirky take on life, and an extraordinary guitar style.” The Washington Post praises “the subtle power of his voice, a husky, hushed baritone,” and calls it “at once sophisticated and intimate.” Based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin after stints in Dublin and Boston, Peter has released 15 albums, including his latest, The Good Stuff, a dazzling collection of songs by other artists, from Duke Ellington to Tom Waits, Willie Nelson to Thelonius Monk.
