Ellen McIlwaine

Goddess of Slide Guitar

“… Ellen McIlwaine’s set was a mix of covers and original songs. Her voice is a big, well-trained, controlled pop soprano that seems equally at home in country, blues, gospel, rock, Latin, and folk idioms. Her guitar playing sounds as confidently virtuosic as anyone you might hear. What makes Miss McIlwaine so extraordinary is the way she manages to fuse all her influences into something unique.”
