Mar 28 2017: Alaska Alaska Alaska

Mar 28 2017 Alaska Alaska Alaska

It's happening! Next year--

May 25-June 1, 2018! I will be floating up the scenic glacier route on a Celebrity Cruise Liner from Vancouver to Seward, Alaska. Radoslav Lorkovic will be joining me on piano for this dream journey! We will have multiple shows, workshops, and excursions along the way! Lastly, We will be capping off the cruise with a performance at ALICE'S CHAMPAGNE PALACE, the bar from my song of the same name, in Homer on the night of Friday, June 1st!

The trip to Homer and Alice's is an add on, you can head there yourself via rental car or unicycle or jump on a chartered bus with us-- rates to be determined still for this part of the journey, but it's happening!

I'm announcing this week because of discounts offered on the onboard expenses for early booking-- you can save up to $450 this way... but only if you book before April 3rd... so if you are even ON THE FENCE, put down the $250 deposit now, to get these savings later! If you decide you can't go your money will be reimbursed up until February of 2018.

This truly is a bucket list trip for me, and I hope you will come along with us for the ride! We expect 50-100 adventurous people to cone along, and a few humpback whales and grizzly bears...

There are all-request shows, workshops on guitar, creativity and songwriting, q and a's, and cocktail meet and greets. Celebrity provides private venues on board for our group, and excursions during stops on land. It's quite fun! If you've attended these with me,  please post your pics and experiences below!

Please share this email with friends who may be interested.

It's not on the websites yet.

But all the info can had by emailing Don Davidoff, or with a call at 303.588.1389!

Hope to see you in Alaska!

The weather should be great in May!


One of the best aspects of being a life long touring artist is I have the chance to see America and Canada in a way few people can. When I meet strangers and ask them where they are from, I can spark conversations about their home towns with experiences I've had there over the years, the friends I've made and known and the little bars and restaurants and coffee shops that make those towns cool.

Alaska has always been a soul connecting experience. This week I am in its polar opposite with a trip to New Mexico! See the dates below-- Sante Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces shows and workshops on tap! I love it there!


Some things for your interest:

CONCERT WINDOW SHOW
Thursday April 6th @ 7pm EST

I will be performing songs from my 1997 album "A Carnival of Voices" which features songs like "Paris in a Day," Trolley Car, " and "Weightless" ... all from my livingroom to yours! Mark it down!

THE NEW ENGLAND SONGWRITERS RETREAT

If you are a songwriter or even just want to be, I'm hosting a fantastic weekend gathering with some of the best touring artists in the country-- Dan Bern, Abbie Gardner, Laurie MacAllister, George Wurzbach, Vance Gilbert, managers Ralph Jaccodine and Brittany Bethune and myself will be teaching workshops on writing, performing, and the business of songwriting on August 31-Sept 4 in Chester, CT at the Guest House Retreat Center.

25TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS AT CLUB PASSIM, CAMBRIDGE, MA!

I will be doing another run of shows at Passim this summer to celebrate my 25th Anniversary by doing selections from all of my albums one by one. Many shows! Keep an eye out to hear your favorite one!


MENTORING

I am also mentoring songwriters and musician artists in person and via Skype, on their songs, guitar, careers, and music life. You can purchase single sessions, all the way up to ten sessions-- this is very helpful to people who want to up their game, improve their songs, or get themselves ready for a new studio project by editing and cleaning up their material and doing preproduction work.

Follow the link here, and select "Lessons" for rate information.

Contact Brittany for more information.

SCHOOL VISITS

My CD/book, "The Hero in You" was named the #1 book for teachers by Scholastic in 2014. If you would like to bring me in for a school or library visit-- I do songwriting, classroom visits and shows or a full day of working my way through the schools, all ages, contact Brittany for more information.


PRIVATE SHOWS

I am filling the calendar with non venue shows by playing in the living rooms of people all over the country-- anniversaries, birthdays, or just gatherings!

Contact Brittany here.


See you out on the road!

Best,
Ellis
