LAWM presents New York City's angriest yodelling banjo player
Curtis Eller! in a quality 5 act line up....
CURTIS ELLER (USA)
LAWM presents CURTIS ELLER - New York City's angriest yodelling banjo player. His biggest musical
influences are Buster Keaton, Elvis Presley and Abraham Lincoln! Catchy cutting songs and the art of
live performance are the key to a Curtis Eller gig. Curtis is a good friend of both Baby Dee and Thomas
Truax, that should tell you all you need to know about his take on entertaining the audience! Appearing
tonight as part of a UK tour showcasing his new LP.
Main support comes from Norwegian RAGZ who by now will need little introduction playing our night for a
record 4th time, enchanting songs, a crowd hushing voice and now just finished mastering her first
album. RAGZ is a singer/songwriter born and raised in a land coloured by northern lights and fairytale
creatures. Ragz came to Liverpool in 2003 and as an acoustic, solo artist, she has been doing gigs all
over the UK for the last few years, including support dates with Marissa Nadler, Baby Dee and Ian
McNabb. Her music is of spellbinding, acoustic tones and weaves intricately with her soul tingling
voice. Appearing tonight as part of the Little Stings UK tour.
Dan Melrose is a singer-songwriter and guitar instrumentalist based in Manchester. He writes, records
and performs original material that, if it had to be pigeonholed, would be called folk. Blending the
romance of folk music with the grim realities of the blues… Melrose uses his guitar virtuosity to create
a sound that balances the traditional with the modern. Live Melrose is dramatic and capitivating.
Kicking off the night are local acoustic/folk duo TURNSTONE who boast two great voices. Now extended to
a four piece that includes violin, mandolin and banjo.
Kicking off the night is multi-talented multi-instrumentalist Paddy Garrigan who shall ensure that the
night begins and ends with the sounds of the banjo!
