PaulGeremiaIn a free concert sponsored by the Saratoga Acoustic Blues Society, Paul Geremia settled into Congress Park in Saratoga Springs on Tuesday, August 4, singing songs and telling stories about such grand old men of the blues as Skip James, Son House, Sleepy John Estes and Pink Anderson.

He also played many of his own songs, drawing from albums that he recorded for Folkways, Flying Fish and Red House Records. Playing both six and 12-string acoustic guitars, Geremia took the crowd on a blues journey, traveling through the many Mississippi Delta blues styles and east to the Piedmont blues tradition.
