These are two Canadian songwriters that I think are similar in some ways to Ellis. Both, like Ellis, do a great job writing slices-of-lic story songs in a way that is genuine and heartfelt. They have both been around for a very long time and would recommend either of them. Canada has a great folk scene ranging from great singer-songwriters, singer-songwriters who go between writing and singing folk tunes of their heritage (Keelaghan has a great new album of mostly Canadian, Irish, and English tunes), Celtic type groups (much of Canada is of Scottish and Irish descent), and fiddle players.

James Keelaghan absolutely WOWED the crowds at Kerrville back in the day. We have 2 of his older CDs and both are excellent. I have not had the chance to sample Garnet Rogers solo stuff but do know well the music he made with his brother, the late great Stan Rogers.
