Finding a second great guitar, Paul will complement his array of early blues (John Hurt, Furry Lewis, and Howlin’ Wolf) with D minor tunes from the Piedmont, featuring selections from John Cephas (Phil Wiggins late, great partner) and more. For good measure, he’ll add some contemporary offerings from such as Dylan, J.J. Cale, Steve Earle, Pat Donohue, and Ray Bonneville.
Three good friends writing and playing music. We’ve collectively over 40 years of live performance, and recently cut an album. Our experience comes from local venues, bands like The Tonekats, Doc Johnson, and Fandango (ZZ Top tribute). We practice regularly and write, but itch to play live again! We’ve attended the HomeGrown Live Music Festival in the past and would love to contribute!
