---- — HAVERHILL, MA – Ellis Paul first appeared on the New Moon stage during its inaugural season—25 years ago. Since then, Ellis Paul has grown and flourished. He’s won 14 Boston Music Awards (only Aerosmith has earned more). And his songs are heard on TV--in shows, commercials, and documentaries--and in the soundtracks of several films. Director Peter Farrelly has called him “a national treasure.”

Paul performs at the New Moon Coffeehouse on Sat., March 16, at 8:00 p.m. The coffeehouse is located in the Universalist Unitarian Church, 16 Ashland St, Haverhill MA. Admission to the show is $20.00, and $10.00 for those ages 18 and under.

Paul is the leading voice in American songwriting. His charismatic, authentic performance style has influenced a generation of artists away from the artifice of pop, and closer towards the realness of folk.

Opening musician Jim Trick says he’s “excited to be sharing an evening with one of the greatest performing songwriters of our time.” Trick is a magnetic and engaging performer. For the last twenty years he has melded his original brand of alt-folk / solo acoustic rock with motivational life lessons. Trick’s concert appearances are intimate and with disarming humor and transparency he is able to instantly connect with his audience. Come hear these fantastic musicians. Tickets for this show are available at the door starting around 6:30; doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be reserved prior to the show by visiting www.newmooncoffeehouse.org, or by calling 978-459-5134.
