Paul Geremia at Lily Pads
One week prior to his induction into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame, traditional blues guitar master Paul Geremia returns to Lily Pads. Paul's command of acoustic 6 and 12 string  fingerstyle is second to none, as is his ability to recount the stories of the musicians and the songs that have been his life.

For almost forty years, Paul Geremia has survived solely by the fruit of his musical labours. Having abandoned all other means of support in 1966, he has been travelling far and wide ever since, performing in every capacity from street singing to club and concert bookings, throughout the U.S.A., Canada and Europe.

In the years since, Geremia has built a reputation as a first rate bluesman, songwriter, a "scholar" of early jazz and blues, and one of the best country blues fingerpickers ever with his tools - six and twelve-string guitars, harmonica, piano and a husky soulful voice - and with an innate sense of the humour as well as the drama of the music, he keeps traditional blues fresh and alive with his performances.

Combining his interpretation of the earlier music of people like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Scrapper Blackwell and Blind Blake, with his original compositions, he has created a style which is very much his own and which has received accolades in the U.S.A. and Europe, too numerous to mention.

Paul's show at Lily Pads in January 2012 was standing room only. We are very pleased to welcome him again.
