Italian blues musician Pierluigi Petricca talks about his experience in Clarksdale, slide guitar and local scene September 15, 2014
“The blues, as other kind of music, become a vehicle to declare social problems or to communicate all the nuances of the soul.”
Pierluigi Petricca: The Vein Of Blues
Italian singer/guitarist Pierluigi Petricca was born in 1968 and has been known in Italy leading the “Papaleg Blues Band”. Since this collaboration he had acquired a unique own way to render his emotions trough the 6 strings of the resonator guitar. Thanks to his intense studying of the delta blues masters (Charlie Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Bukka White, Furry Lewis, Mississippi Fred McDowell) he acquired the capacity of express himself through the bottleneck. He meets Marco Tinari in 2002 and they joined into the Papaleg Acoustic Duo in 2005. [More]
