Ellison’s unplugged sessions celebrates sixth anniversary

The lineup includes Angel and April Lavine, Steve Pierson, Pauline and James Lamb

Ellison’s Cafe Acoustic Unplugged sessions celebrates their sixth anniversary this Saturday afternoon (December 21) with an extra hour of music.

Come by Ellison’s at noon to hear Angel and April. Angel is a singer-songwriter who plays a variety of genres, from folk to country and blues. He is very excited to sing with April Lavine and her angelic harmonies. April is very happy to be part of the community and bring her passion to the stage!

Steve Pierson takes over at 1 p.m. He’s been playing the sitar since 1999 and has used some Indian Raga “voicings” to customize tunes ranging from the Beatles, traditional American fiddle tunes, jazz pieces and originals.

Pauline Lamb and her nephew James Lamb will play the final hour of this last unplugged session of 2013. Pauline will perform songs from her new album Hillbilly Burlesque released last month. This recording is just Pauline and her guitar, cowboy boots on the plywood floor and the woodstove.
