Two of the best singer/songwriters in the country, one from the east – PEI’s Dennis Ellsworth – and one from the west – BC’s Leeroy Stagger – team up for a can’t-miss show at The Carleton on Thursday, June 11th. Show time is 9 PM and tickets are only $10 at the door.
We have Dennis Ellsworth play at The Carleton every chance we get because, well, he’s just that good and someday – hopefully soon – everyone else will figure that out. His new album, As Romantic As It Gets is due very soon. In the meantime, you have a chance to see him for not a lot of money and that’s a chance you’ll take, if you’re smart.
Compared to everyone from John Hiatt to Steve Earle to Ryan Adams, Leeroy Stagger has established himself – through a body of work as strong as anyone’s in this country – as a songwriter’s songwriter. His latest, Dream It All Away, is released this month. This show will be his first appearance at The Carleton since 2012.
