On Friday, May 5, 2017, Peter Karp & The Roadshow Band will perform at The Roasting Room, above The Corner Perk, from 8-10 p.m.
Considered one of the finest contemporary Americana and blues artists around, singer-songwriter, slide guitarist and pianist Peter Karp has carved out his own unique niche. At once funny, poignant, irreverent, romantic and always true to life, Karp’s compositions reflect his own intriguing backstory.
As a songwriter Karp first garnered national attention and critical acclaim through his collaboration with guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones who recorded and toured with Karp on his first label release, The Turning Point. His next national release on Blind Pig Records, Shadows and Cracks, had Karp sharing the main stage with the venerable Delbert McClinton, New Orleans-based roots rock band, TheSubdudes, and three-time Grammy winner, blues great Keb Mo. In 2008 Karp formed The Karp Foley Band with Canadian blues guitarist Sue Foley. As the principle songwriter of the group Karp made 2 very successful Cd’s “He Said She Said” and Beyond The Crossroads.” In 2016 Karp will next release “The Arson’s Match” a live show recorded by Sirius radio at The Bottom Line in NYC. That Cd is part of a charity project that he started for Ovarian Cancer Research.
