PAUL GEREMIA

HOMETOWN | Providence

BIO | Geremia jokes that he hails from the "Providence River delta," but there is nothing funny about the man's gritty, gorgeous, heart-scraping blues. The journeyman found early inspiration in true Rhody fashion: he saw Mississippi John Hurt play at the Newport Folk Festival and bought records by Blind Boy Fuller and Tommy McClennan at Providence's Salvation Army.

FROM THEPHOENIX | In an interview about his induction earlier this year, Geremia quoted Delta blues legend Son House: "The blues is about the relationship between a man and a woman. And that's all it is. There's nothing else to it."

SELECTED RECORDINGS | "Crawlin' King Snake Blues," "Midnight Hour Blues," "Early Mornin' Blues," "Drive Away Blues," "Gamblin' Woman Blues," "Bad Dream Blues," "Loners' Blues," "Evil World Blues," "Rising River Blues"
