Doctors Without Borders



There’s just something about Ellis. She is funny, wise, thoughtful and uninhibited, and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. Her irrepressible spirit comes through in her transformational performances, leaving her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges and opened hearts.

A winner of numerous awards and honors including the Grass Hill New Folk Contest in 2013, Ellis has been recognized both for her songwriting skills and engaging performances. She has claimed “audience favorite” honors at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Moab Folk Festival, and Sisters Folk Festival. Ellis has also been a repeat guest on A Prairie Home Companion.

What Folks Are Saying About Ellis

  • “Ellis is one of the most engaging personalities that I’ve ever witnessed on a stage. Within seconds you’ll fall in love with her bubbling attitude for life, and her captivating laugh has been echoing in my heart all week!”
    Ron Olesko, WFDU Public Radio
  • If ever there was a feel-good folk musician, this is the woman – somebody who really does send you off feeling better about the world.”
    John Davy, No Depression
  • “Ellis walks on stage, flashes a bashful grin and does what she does best: singing her heart out every single time.”
    Dale Schiff, Just Out Magazine


Special Guest Opening Act: Rebecca Pronsky

Rebecca Pronsky is a born and raised Brooklynite whose music is “as urban as it is rural, not afraid to be sophisticated” (Maverick). Her songs are gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre.

She “sounds like The Smiths relocated to Nashville” (Northern Sky) and “her voice conveys the wisdom of experience, over a wash of noirishly twangy guitars” (NPR).

Rebecca is joined on stage and in the studio by husband and guitarist/producer Rich Bennett “whose lean chords and riffs evoke shades of The Doors, Morricone and classic rockabilly” (The Scotsman). The two have spent nearly a decade criss-crossing the US and Europe on tour and have shared the stage with Shawn Colvin, Freedy Johnston, Loudon Wainwright III, Josh Ritter, Amy Rigby, and Steve Forbert among others. Rebecca’s latest record “Only Daughter” was named a Top Ten Country Album of 2013 by the UK’s Daily Telegraph.
