If you haven’t yet caught her engaging and disarming live show, take a chance on Ellis and you’ll become a lifelong fan. She leaves audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts. With songs that capture deep wisdom as well as a childlike playfulness and joy, Ellis’ music is being spread across the globe by fans who are so moved that they have to share it others. She released her 7th album, Right On Time, in 2010.
Pat Wictor is an adept improviser and accompanist, sought after as a collaborator, sideman and session musician. His performances--part fireside chat, part meditation on matters earthly and transcendent--feature his originals. In addition to his own tunes, he is quick to offer up a newly-discovered lyric from another performer, or a fresh arrangement of a traditional song, delighting in introducing his audience to innovative material. With flowing red hair and zen-like calm, Pat embraces his audience with the sincerity of his music and the clarity of his voice, inviting them in.
