Ellis Paul Returns to Presque Isle for UMPI Concert May 18
Ellis Paul’s performance will take place during the same weekend that he will be featured as UMPI’s graduation speaker and honorary degree recipient. This special concert will serve as a fundraiser for UMPI’s Auditorium Renovation Project.
Born in Aroostook County, Paul was a track star at Presque Isle High School and later at Boston College, until a knee injury pointed him down the road to a musical career. Ellis Paul has released 18 albums to date, and his songs have been recorded by many artists, including Sugarland. He continues to perform upwards of 200 shows a year.
Tickets for the UMPI concert are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Special VIP tickets can be purchased for $25 that include a reception with Ellis Paul at 2:00 p.m. in the Alumni Room. The concert begins at 3:00 p.m. in the Campus Center.
Tickets will be on sale at UMPI’s Campus Store, Morning Star Art & Framing in Presque Isle, Foster’s on the Run in Caribou, and York’s Bookstore in Houlton.
