Ellis and the Acoustic Guitar Project

Ten songwriters will perform, but only one guitar will take center-stage at Monday’s Acoustic Guitar Project showcase. Texas-bred, Twin Cities-based folkie and recent “A Prairie Home” performer Ellis was hand-picked by Acoustic Guitar magazine to write a song on a certain six-string and then hand the instrument off to other local tunesmiths to do the same. Other participants include Chastity Brown, the Ericksons, Kevin Bowe, John Hermanson, Quillan Roe and Pennyroyal’s Angie Oase — quite a wide array of artistry for one little guitar to withstand for one night.
