Paul Geremia

Are there any Paul Geremia fans out there?
He lives in a nursing home which is annexed to RI Hospital in Providence, RI
and I visit him from time to time. Are there any messages that friends and fans would like to pass on to him? Thanks!

Please tell him that Eric and Suzy Thompson from Berkeley say hello and thank him (again) for his wonderful and inspiring music.  Is he able to play at all these days?

I really enjoy his record on the Flying Fish label "Don't Mind Livin'/My Kinda Place" lately.

 He's been an inspiration to me since the first album
Like him, I started on Harmonica ( I was also a protege' of Big Walter Horton) and later took up fingerstyle

Tell him thanks for the great music.  I cherish his recordings from the very first one.

Great to hear, thank you!  While we only met a few times - the last being years ago on Main Street at King Biscuit Blues Festival, please thank him for taking a personal approach and for his musical storytelling, which inspires me to this day.

This recent post at his website seems promising, has he started playing some again?

At first glance, it looks like the host website expired in 2016, but the domain is live now.  The owner likely never rebuilt the Geremia page or whatever else - if anything - was on the site.
