Stories with Paul Lynn - TEEG Benefit

Paul Lynn engages his audience with a combination of folksy humor and wry commentary. Regardless of the subject, Lynn said, “One thing is certain; Woodstock Yankees continue to look at life a tad differently than our urban friends.” Lynn has a master’s degree in American folk culture and history museum training from Cooperstown Graduate Programs. He has worked at Old Sturbridge Village in various craft/ballad-singing capacities for a number of years.

Peter Mulvey

Peter Mulvey has spent twenty-odd years on the road, performing songs from his own catalog and from a vast, varied, and deep well of classic and obscure covers. Night after night, the process of divining the heart of a song and being alert to where the moment can lead, has shaped him as an artist.

Paul Geremia

For forty years, Paul Geremia has lived on the fruit of his musical labours, travelling and performing in venues from street singing to club and concert bookings, throughout the U.S.A., Canada and Europe. 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 humor as well as the drama of the music, he keeps traditional blues fresh and alive with his performances.
