Paul Geremia

Date: 
Wednesday, April 24, 2013 - 7:00pm

Tonight, we have a special guest on Against the Grain with Nick DiBiasio.

Providence-born Paul Geremia is an internationally-known musician, equally well-regarded in the folk and blues communities. An active performer and major label recording artist for more than 40 years, Acoustic Guitar magazine calls Geremia "One of the best country blues finger-pickers ever." His approach has never been simply that of a preservationist carrying on a tradition – he has always put his own stamp on the music by introducing his original songs as well as material from other genres into the style. His long string of critically-acclaimed albums for Folkways, Sire, Adelphi, Flying Fish and Red House has firmly established him at the forefront of the Americana music scene and he has been a major player in evolving country blues music into the modern era. Paul Geremia will be inducted into the RI Music Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 28th.
