Ellen is known for
her astonishing vocals, as she gracefully moves among genres from blues to jazz to funk and ballads. Her percussive rhythm guitar work is well suited to her voice, and she plays solo, in duos and trios, up to a full nine piece band complete with a horn section. She’s won numerous awards for her work, including consideration for two Grammy Award nominations in 1999 and most recently in 2009 for “Four Way Stop.”

"Ellen’s a class act. Over the years she’s turned in some of the strongest sets we’ve seen on our stages. It was great to have her back in the lineup this year.”

--Peter Dammann, Talent Coordinator, Waterfront Blues Festival
