Java Jive Jazz Brunch - Paul Buckley - SOLD OUT

Paul Buckley1From the age of six Paul was taught classical piano and theory of music.He taught himself to play guitar from the age of eight and by the time he was fourteen he was already playing in his local folk clubs in the West Midlands area of the U.K.His music is a mixture of americana roots music and his own compositions. Much of it came via his father who had been a jazz musician in the 1950's.He had appeared with New Orleans musician Lonnie Johnson,a guitarist that became a major influence on Paul's style.His basic programme to this day is made up from a heady cocktail of folk blues and jazzy swing tunes blended together with his own beautifully crafted songs.

In addition to solo appearances in folk blues and jazz clubs Paul Buckley has collaborated with many other performers. His trio's included Mr Charlie', 'The Winfield Brothers' and 'The Dynamite Twins' inspired by the string bands and country blues singers of the 1930's.One of these line ups achieved some recognition when in 1978 they opened for blues legends Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee.

In the 1980's Paul worked in the folk and roots clubs and at festivals as a solo performer and with the guitarist Chris Newman.In the 1990's he concentrated on working with band musicians in England, throughout Europe and in Ireland.After 2000 and following the success of the books 'McCarthy's Bar' and 'The Road to McCarthy' he toured with the actor writer and comedian Pete McCarthy.There have been five or six line ups of 'The Paul Buckley Band' which continues to evolve and there are several 'Paul Buckley Trio's' alive and well in Donegal where he lives,immersed in the traditional and contemporary music of Ireland that is another major influence.
