Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting. He was a principle leader in the wave of singer/songwriters that emerged from the Boston folk scene, creating a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk pop style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 1990’s.  Paul is today regarded as such a classic urban songwriter that it’s hard to fathom what a small-town boy he was. He grew up in northern Maine, in a potato farming community so remote that his exposure to music came almost entirely from the one top-40 station he could get on his radio, and his school band, where he played trumpet well enough to earn a summer scholarship to the Berklee College of Music.

Scott Pryor – Tipping his hat to folks like Woody Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Will Oldham and M. Ward, Scott writes songs built upon his passion for narrative and rich lyrical imagery. His new album, Theater for the Weary, is built on timeless themes of loss, love, death, labor, community, and the mysteries of the sacred. Check his website at : http://www.scottpryormusic.com/
