Ellis PaulAs part of their study of American immigration, second and fourth graders at Graham and Parks were treated to a special performance by critically acclaimed acoustic singer-songwriter Ellis Paul. Paul shared his book The Hero in You which celebrates men and women who made significant contributions to American life. Originally from Boston, he has won 14 Boston Music Awards and was invited by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to pay tribute to his hero Woody Guthrie. This performance was made possible through an ongoing partnership with Folk New England (FNE). FNE works with Graham and Parks third graders to learn about the history of folk music in Cambridge, and with fourth graders to learn about the role that music has played in social change movements throughout American history.
