On Saturday, September 29th at 7pm, the Elling House Arts & Humanities Center is proud to present Paul Boruff in concert!
Music has been with Paul Boruff his entire life. He just can’t help hearing it and playing it and singing it. One of the things that makes Paul unique is his voice and amazing range, however it is his ability to “click” with audiences that sets him apart from other entertainers. Mr. Boruff is more than an accomplished singer and instrumentalist; he brings to the stage warmth and charisma that you will remembers long after the performance is over.
Paul Boruff a native of Phoenix, Arizona enjoys performing for people of all ages. At the age of five or six, he was captured on home movies singing Elvis Presley songs, and doing his best to entertain. Paul began playing the guitar at about the age of ten. The music he was exposed to was quite varied and was rich in diversity: Buddy Holly, The Beatles, Hank Williams, Eddie Arnold, Chet Atkins, Bob Dylan, Nat King Cole and Crosby, Stills and Nash. Paul’s father was the primary music influence in those early years, and his music was mostly country with a mixture of thirties and forties classics thrown in.
During Paul’s four years with the United States Navy he performed in the Admiral’s Band, out of Memphis, Tennessee. The style was “Big Band.” The Navy gave him opportunity to travel and to experience music of many other cultures.
Paul has traveled and performed all over the world from London to Dover, from Zurich to Gdańsk and from Amsterdam to Paris. In the United States he performs from Alaska to Florida and California to New York.
Paul’s acoustic style includes all the influences of his past. His forte is vocals and his singing has been described as “each word is an event.” Making music comes as easily to him as breathing; his expansive repertoire transcends the barriers of age and cultural differences. Whether it is an original interpretation of an old standard or a tune of his own creation, Paul sings from the heart and plays from his soul.
Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at the door.
