“There’s just something about Ellis. She is at once funny and wise, thoughtful and uninhibited, and her captivating voice is matched by her uplifting lyrics. If you looked up the definition of open-hearted in the dictionary, you just might find her photo there. Ellis’ performances are transformational; she leaves her audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts.”

at The Flurry Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY

Featuring performers: Dan Duggan, Peggy Lynn, Annie Rosen, Bill Spence, Toby Stover, and George Wilson

With enlightening narrative, and songs that women sang during the suffrage movement between 1848 and 1920, this dynamic 50 minute performance tells the story of the New York women who worked to reform the inequality of women in the new America. From Lucinda Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony to Harriet Stanton Blatch, Carrie Chapman Catt, Inez Milholland and Alice Paul the story of the most innovative and successful non-violent civil rights reform was waged over 72 years. forwardintolight.oldsongs.org
