Karen Z and Ellis beat the Wikipedia odds!







Dear Friends of Ellis=2E=2E=2E=2E Over the course of a decade of managing Ellis Paul, I have been surrounded by a number of very enthusiastic, skilled and competent fans who have helped spread his music all around the globe=2E One of these folks is Karen Zundel from Pittsburgh, Pa=2E



Karen has been working tirelessly on writing an Ellis Paul article for Wikipedia over the past several months=2E On Feb=2E 23, 2007, the article received the Feature Article rating - the highest rating in Wikipedia=2E At that time, the article was nominated to appear on Wikipedia's Main Page=2E The Main Page receives nearly 3 million unique visits each day=2E



Karen and I are happy to report that the Ellis Paul article has been selected to appear on the Wikipedia Main Page TOMORROW, Tuesday, May 22, 2007=2E



To put this into some perspective, at this time there are:



1,785,823 articles in Wikipedia

1398 of those have achieved the rating Feature Article

94 of those Feature Articles are in the category Music

35 of those Music Feature Articles are biographies

(Only) 3 of those music biographies are folk musicians: Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Ellis Paul=2E



In the history of Wikipedia, only one folk musician has ever been featured on the Main Page: Bob Dylan - on May 17, 2004=2E



This coming Tuesday, May 22, 2007, Ellis Paul will be the second folk musician ever to be featured=2E I am thrilled and humbled at the prospect of not only bringing attention to Ellis Paul, but to folk music in general, and hopefully to many of the artists mentioned within the article=2E



The Main page link is http://en=2Ewikipedia=2Eorg/wiki/Main_Page



Please pass along this information to anyone who you think may be interested=2E=2E=2E Thanks to Karen and all the fans of Ellis who work hard to spread the music=2E=2E=2E



Best Regards,



Ralph Jaccodine

manager
