Ellis Paul with special guest Darryl Purpose
Ellis Paul is one of the leading voices in American songwriting and one of the top songwriters to emerge out of the fertile Boston folk scene. He helped create a movement that revitalized the national acoustic circuit with an urban, literate, folk rock style that helped renew interest in the genre in the 90's.
When Darryl Purpose was 16 years old, his mother put a book called 'Beat the Dealer' in his Christmas stocking. He went to Las Vegas as a teenager and began a career as professional card player and still calls this the 'only real job I've ever had'. Years later he took time off to walk across the country for peace, and fell in with a bad crowd musicians & peaceniks. In 1996, inspired by his work with a traveling band of musical activists, Darryl began to tour nationally as a solo singer-songwriter. Eight years, six CD's and a thousand-plus shows later, he was headlining venues like the Freight and Salvage, Club Passim, McCabes, The Bluebird Cafe, The Kennedy Center, and the Kerrville Folk Festival MainStage.
