Craig Ventresco

Friday - July, 13 @ 8:00pm

Acoustic guitarist Craig Ventresco's style is a unique combination of Ragtime, rural Blues, early Jazz guitar and traditional String Band influences. His playing is at once fiery, melodic and inventive. Ventresco has concentrated on early 20th century vaudeville, ragtime, and popular songs as recorded on obscure 78s and cylinders from the dawn of the recorded music era. He features music written by Eubie Blake, Scott Joplin, Big Bill Broonzy, James Scott, Lucky Roberts, and a Ventresco original as well. His playing was featured on the soundtrack album for the film "Crumb." ~ Cafe Divine Newsletter
