Ellis Paul is doing a series of five concerts later this week at Passim in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts. While that's not unusual in itself, what is interesting is that at four of the five shows he'll be performing two of his albums straight through. (The other show - a Saturday afternoon show - is just one album, the children's record.) So Ellis Paul has been relearning a lot of his old material, including some songs he hasn't played in approximately fifteen years. This will be a chance to hear a lot of great songs. And guess what? At only one of those five concerts will he play "3,000 Miles."
I'm hoping that after these shows, he'll continue to put a lot of these songs into his set lists.
