Ellis Paul: A Modern Folk Holiday
Ellis Paul might not have become a professional musician if it weren’t for an injury.
While attending Boston College on a track scholarship, he was hurt and sidelined and picked up the guitar to pass his time. Now more than 20 years later, he’s been dubbed the “Dean of the Boston School of Songwriting,” known for his modern folk sound.
This year he takes on holiday music for the first time and releases his first holiday album this month.
