The Flagstaff Arts Council and Greenhouse Productions are pleased to present blues style singer-songwriter, Tinsley Ellis at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Sunday, December 4, 2016. Doors open at 6:30 pm and concert begins at 7:30 pm.
Tinsley Ellis is a proud Georgia-based artist, touring with his new album Red Clay Soul and celebrating a legacy built on four decades of performing, recording and song writing. Ellis has chosen to title this new collection Red Clay Soul to celebrate the music of the Georgia.
“Georgia is where the Blues has got Soul. From the gospel inspired Ray Charles, to the R&B of James Brown and Otis Redding, to the Rock and Roll of Little Richard, to the Blues Rock of The Allman Brothers Band, all these acts have one thing in common. They all have the sound of Georgia and down here we call that sound red clay soul”
Tinsley Ellis has achieved a lot of success and worked with some of the best in the business. He has toured the globe, released 19 albums, and won Rock/Blues Album Of The Year with Tough Love in 2015 from Blues Blast Magazine. Ellis was recently inducted to the New York Blues Hall of Fame. Tinsley Ellis continues to release compelling music, sharing his blues-steeped legacy, songwriting, and pride in being a Georgia-based artist.
