    The next concert in the Round Church Bicentennial concert series, Blues Night with Bill Ellis will take place in the community room of the Richmond Free Library on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 PM with a suggested donation of $5 per person.

    William Lee Ellis has got the blues. Named for legendary bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, Bill Ellis grew up in a musical family in Kingsport, Tennessee, steeped in traditional American blues and bluegrass music. He spent his youth backing his fiddle-and-banjo playing dad (Tony Ellis, one of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys) at bluegrass festivals across the country. Later they performed widely around the world, appeared on TV, and made a number of recordings together.

    Ellis has recorded four albums. The latest, God's Tattoos, won the 2007 Best International CD Release from the Blue Star Awards, Australia, and was nominated for Best National Recording in the Muddy Awards, Cascade Blues Association, Portland, Oregon. All Music Guide called Ellis "An original guitarist and songwriter who understands that tradition is the source of the flame but is never the fire itself."
