..originals along with some classic blues in his own masterful arrangements..
— The Guthrie Center

Melding Blues, Folk, Country and American Primitive styles, Eli Catlin plays and sings with an intensity, and honesty, which make for a truly engaging musical experience.

As a featured headliner in the 2016 Guthrie Center’s Troubadour series they wrote "This young artist offered up both originals along with some classic blues in his own masterful arrangements for an outstanding performance!" 

In 2010 the Boston Blues Society chose Eli to represent them in the Youth Showcase at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.

Eli has opened for acts such as Joe Lois Walker, Room Full of Blues and JD McPherson, Robert Cray as well as headlining many of his own shows. Whether through his compositions, performances or teachings, Eli express himself with an refreshing authenticity, and is most certainly an integral part of the valley’s music scene.
