singer-songwriter guitarist

Paul Curreri

  • Monday | 03.05.10
  • 7.30pm
  • Band on the Wall, Manchester
  • £10 General...


Once described as ‘a ruffled gypsy gutter cowboy’, Paul Curreri sews an elaborately embroidered soundscape together from the rich traditions of his American homeland and then rips it to shreds with his spontaneous, twisting and brilliant finger-picking, country-blues guitar playing. Mix that with a lyricism full of truth, grace and raw beauty and you have one of Americana’s new shining sons. Join us for what promises to be one of the season’s highlights as this energizing and elemental artist hits town.

This concert will begin at 8pm

“Furrowing a sonic field which few musicians would be admitted to at this time. Dexterous guitar work and hushed insight, full of soul and (at last) originality. “ Americana UK

“This work is loaded with subtle genius in its delicate music and impressive words …engaging, literate, and charming.” Blues Revue Magazine

“Spontaneous and poetic, twisting guitar parts, and shuffling rhythmic patterns.  His routines thankfully haven’t been hammered into regular shape.” The Independent
