Florida troubadour duo brings their tour to Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls

BELLOWS FALLS — Americana-troubadours-at-large Bill & Eli Perras are bringing their music and storytelling from Volusia County, FL to Stage 33 Live in Bellows Falls VT on Friday, October 4, in advance of shows in Massachusetts and NYC. Regulars at folk venues and festivals, their strong heartfelt lyrics and bluesy finger-style guitar have put a dent in the folk music scene, and they’ve shared stages with many nationally recognized entertainers.

The veteran touring duo also use the power of the spoken word to tell the sincere and often funny stories behind the songs, with much inspiration from storytelling musicians such as John McCutchen, Roy BookBinder, David Holt, and Gamble Rogers. Equally at home being champions for social justice or recognizing the humor in the follies of everyday life, they can stir hearts or softly strike a funny bone to inspire a sentiment for the common good.

Eli is also the author of Raising Adam — In the Face of Adversity, which shares the story of raising her blind, deaf, multi-handicapped son, Adam, who was born ten weeks early at home.

“Each song thoughtfully brings the human condition to light and most offer a silver lining, the possibility of change if we get off our butts and reach out to each other.” — SingOut! Magazine

“Bill’s guitar playing is excellent and crisp, and Eli sings with a pure joy in her voice.” — Vince Martin

“It’s about as close as anyone, here, comes to recalling, in our time, the authentic sound of traditional American Music.” — Sir Charles Atkins


“One of the best stage performances I’ve ever seen.” — Judge Nelson Bailey
