National treasure. Honorary citizen of Okemah, OK, Woody Guthries home town. Honorary doctorate bestowed by the University of Maine. Critical acclaim that includes 15 Boston Music Awards alone. Nineteen albums since 1993. 200 shows a year for the past 20 years. Ellis Paul checks all those boxes and many, many more. Ive got a car with over 475,000 miles on it, and it's my third road vehicle, he says. Im gonna write and play until Im gone. No doubt he will. Then theres his songwriting. Hard core fans know all about comparisons to the likes of Dylan and Springsteen. They also know the comparisons are not hype. Nora Guthrie simply says that Ellis is one of our best human compasses. Chasing Beauty (2017) is his stunning new release; and this show will mark Elliss second CFC appearance.

Eva (Mama Mabel, vocals, guitar), Lana (Purdy Mabel, vocals, guitar), Suzanne (Baby Mabel, vocals, bass) and Keith (Unstable Mabel, piano, accordion) are native Albertans whose reach spans country, folk, three-part harmonies and three generations of women. Their warm, heart-felt sound earned Group of the Year honours at the 2011 Association of Country Music in Alberta awards.
