Frank Fotusky

Frank Fotusky plays Acoustic Blues in the style reminiscent of the great East Coast "Piedmont" players such as Rev. Gary Davis, Blind Boy Fuller, John Jackson, Blind Willie McTell to name a few. A majority of his material is culled from the '20's, '30's and '40's and Acoustic Blues and Guitar Rags are the foundation of his music. Along with this repertoire, his original compositions are rooted in this era and still carry a contemporary feel. East coast or "Piedmont Blues," as it is so often called, consists of sophisticated syncopation with fingerpicked guitar. The result is a sound that resembles that of the ragtime piano.

Frank Corso

Frank Corso is a master of early Delta and Piedmont blues and ragtime guitar styles, and his snappy fingerpicking and slashing slide guitar will make anybody's foot start tapping. It's 1935 all over again when Frank unpacks his National guitars and starts hollering his versions of classics by Robert Johnson, Tampa Red, Willie Johnson, Willie McTell, and other blues pioneers.

Paul Geremia

Paul Geremia's performances are a blend of acoustic guitar, vocals, harmonica and sometimes piano. For nearly forty years, Geremia has been surviving solely by the fruit of his musical labors. He has performed all over the USA and is just as well known in Europe, Canada and England. Paul is possibly the greatest living performer of the East Coast and Texas finger-picking and slide styles, six and twelve strings. Covers of Blind Willie McTell, Tampa Red, Lemon Jefferson, and Blind Blake (to name just a few) will raise the hair on your neck. John Hammond says he'd drive a thousand miles to see Paul play ... enough said!
