Ellis is an engaging and wholehearted writer, singer and performer who is full of light and spirit. Her fans describe her as not only a talented folk musician, but also as a supportive friend who offers encouraging words and humor alongside her compelling songs. She leaves audiences better than she finds them, with softened edges & opened hearts. With wholehearted songs that capture deep wisdom as well as a childlike joy, Ellis’ music is being spread across the globe by fans who are so moved that they have to share it others. She released her 7th album, Right On Time, in 2010." 

Beth Wood began her musical journey in Lubbock, a high plains Texas town with a uniquely rich musical heritage that includes Buddy Holly, Natalie and Lloyd Maines, Mac Davis, and Joe Ely to name a few. When she wasn’t dodging tornados and dust storms, Beth was studying classical piano, violin, harp, and voice and contemplating the greatness of her Dad’s Willie Nelson records. Her exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and engaging, energetic stage presence have been winning over audiences from coast to coast for more than 16 years.

Ahrre exemplifies the small business owner - connected, charitable and community-minded! Thank you for choosing Homefirst as the recipient of November's Coffee with Conscience!

Hi Natalie, I agree. Check back with Patch for a story about how Ahrre supported a Westfield High School teacher and students as they raised funds to buy coffee and send it to troops in Afghanistan.
