With a decade of success behind him, Amos Lee brings his straight up, old school folk and blues to the Paramount on Tuesday. With a decade of success behind him, Amos Lee brings his straight up, old school folk and blues to the Paramount on Tuesday.

Amos Lee has come a long way from his start as an open mic night fixture in smoke-filled Philadelphia bars. These days he can be found sharing the stage, and holding his own, alongside songwriting royals like Bob Dylan and Dave Matthews. The second grade teacher turned indie rock chart-topper has been to the mountaintop with five critically praised albums, and he employs a repertoire ranging from heartbreaking honky-tonk to bluesy musings reminiscent of Bill Withers.

Tuesday 11/19. $51-41, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
