Ellen Bukstel
April 14th @ 7:30pm

From Menopause to Marijuana, Peace to Politics, Poignant to Provocative, Ellen Bukstel writes and sings about it all and more. This type of happy-sad, life-embracing, fear-overcoming emotional schizophrenia truly captures the spirit of modern independent music making ... whatever she feels in that moment, she shares. She expresses her imagination with her beautiful voice, guitar and keyboard. Her award winning songs chronicle the joys and sorrows of a colorful tapestry still being woven…she conveys love and a depth of concern for the ever-increasing threats to our world and to our own individual rights. All this is related to the audience through a brave, though humorous and earthy connection between the world of musical performance and that of the social “bard” or “troubadour” from which the most powerful and relevant strand of folk music derives it’s roots. It’s not an act. It’s real. Elizabeth Saxton will open the concert.

“Ellen Bukstel has wit, a wonderful voice, get-your-point-across songwriting skills, great stage presence, and is an accomplished musician. What more could you ask for?” ~  Jill Padua, RiverFolk Concerts, Honesdale, PA

“A small bundle of dynamite wrapped in a sweet little package with a big big voice. Ellen will blow you away…literally.”  ~  Maggie McKinney, Roberts Hall, FL
