• Ellis Paul Concert To Close Current Winter Wind Series

Ellis Paul, for many “the face of contemporary folk music,” is returning for a 7 p.m. concert Sunday in the intimate listening room of The Depot, 200 S. Jones Ave.

Tickets for the final Winter Wind concert of the season are $20.Complimentary refreshments are served and wine is available for purchase from Native Sprits Winery.

Though some may refer to Ellis as a folksinger, he is more a singular storyteller, a musician whose words express relatable feelings, thoughts and sensibilities. He is a rare artist who can both document his life and chronicle his times through his music, telling his own story through songs that also encapsulate the essence of people and places who have helped define their era overall.

In reality, the stories are a continuation of tales Paul has told for more than a quarter century, over the expanse of 19 albums, numerous critical kudos (15 Boston Music Awards alone), inclusion in several movie soundtracks, and stages he’s headlined both near and far. He has become a staple at the Newport Folk Festival, ​played Carnegie hall, and venues from Alaska to Miami and Paris to London.

“I’ve been doing 200 shows a year for over 20 years.” Paul said. “There isn’t a town in the country where I won’t find a friend.”

To purchase concert tickets, or for additional information, visit or call 405 307-9320.
