    George Ensle

    Anderson Fair presents George Ensle

    George Ensle, (pronounced Enslee), began songwriting and performing as a teenager in the late sixties in his hometown, Houston at such venerable clubs as the Sand Mountain Coffeehouse and the original Old Quarter, sharing stages with legendary folk greats, Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker.

    While touring the club, college coffeehouse and festival circuit, he was awarded a prestigious Federal Government Grant to be an Artist-In-Schools, teaching songwriting and the creative process to elementary schoolchildren. George has won songwriting awards from The American Song Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Music Umbrella, and the Austin Songwriters Group, and has released five albums in the U.S. and Europe. In 2008 he was nominated for Singer/Songwriter of the Year by the Texas Music Academy.

    George has a unique fingerpicking style originating from his classical guitar training and honed over the years to flow seamlessly with his lyrics. He has been called a "songpainter," capturing "lifescapes", with storysong portraits of "real people making it in the real world."
