Limestone Connection

As Limestone Connection, writers and musicians Holly Morse-Ellington and Jason Tinney combine written prose, music, and playwriting. The duo performs blues and folk-inspired originals and covers in a "variety show" format, with Holly on vocals and ukulele and Jason on harmonica.

Their sets blend readings and dramatic sketches from their collected works of fiction, plays, and essays. They draw material from the gut of life, from family tales and traditions. They have ukes and harps and will travel! In full production, Limestone Connection includes vocalist and guitar player, Hil Andrews. Like us on Facebook!
