    Paul Geremia

    Anderson Fair presents Paul Geremia.

    "Paul Geremia takes his blues like his bourbon, straight. No one can touch him.  An instrumental master with no need to be flashy unless he wants to be, he is a harmonica genius who plays straight harp in a rack upside down, because nobody told him how to do it "right"." - Memphis Acoustic Music Association Page MAMA...

    "Paul Geremia takes his blues like his bourbon, straight. No one can touch him.  An instrumental master with no need to be flashy unless he wants to be, he is a harmonica genius who plays straight harp in a rack upside down, because nobody told him how to do it "right"." - Memphis Acoustic Music Association Page MAMA Elijah Wald

    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.

    Geremia has recorded ten solo albums, and has appeared on numerous anthologies and compilation discs. His superb recordings have made him a critical favorite and place him firmly among the legends who inspired and influenced him over the past four decades.
