Singer-songwriter Ellis Paul is equal parts folk artist and storyteller. His most recent album, Chasing Beauty, is characteristically ballad-centric and tells stories of real people and places that reflect larger truths about the human experience. In the style of  Woody Guthrie, the 15-time Boston Music Award-winner leans on his musical roots for an unfailingly genuine delivery and authentic feel. Australian-born, locally raised folk-pop artist Mariana Bell opens.

Friday, 8/19. $18-20, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 First St. S. 977-5590.
