Tinsley Ellis – Naked Truth Tour

April 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm MDT

Georgia troubadour Tinsley Ellis has been immersed in music his whole life. Born in Atlanta 1957 and raised in southern Florida, he acquired his first guitar at age seven,​ ​inspired by seeing The Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan Show. Like many kids his​ ​age, Ellis discovered the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like​ ​The Yardbirds, Cream and The Rolling Stones as well as Southern rockers like the​ ​Allman Brothers Band. 20 albums (and millions of miles traveled) later on record labels​ ​such as Alligator and Capricorn, Ellis has become an elder statesman of the blues​ ​world.

With his new project Tinsley Ellis – Acoustic Songs And Stories, Ellis performs​ ​many of his most popular songs (plus delta blues and classics by artists like Gregg​ ​Allman, Bob Dylan and Leo Kottke) on his 1937 National Steel and 1969 Martin D-35.​ ​Ellis weaves the music together with interesting and sometimes ribald stories from over​ ​40 years of a life spent on stages and in motels and truck stops. Ellis shows no signs of​ ​slowing down and is headed your way with his newest and perhaps most unique project.
