Paul Greene | 5:30pm Free Entry
Roots & Blues – Paul Greene has a seemingly insatiable appetite for all things musical. At the ripe old age of 12 In the School holidays he was working in a Record Bar in his home town of Nowra on the South Coast, spending everything he made on what ever precious Vinyl he could afford. On the weekends his mum was driving him to gigs to front a local covers band. He has been making up songs for as long as he can remember, however it was much later that Greene came into his own as a songwriter. Zap to the present, and he is just about to release his 8th album through ABC Universal; The follow up to his ARIA nomination for best Blues and Roots album of 2012. He has produced albums for and collaborated with some of the countries most respected musicians like Rob Hirst (midnight Oil), James Blundell, Greg Arnold (things of stone & Wood), and toured with the Who’s Who of international songwriters including grammy nominees Ani Difranco, Alvin ‘Youngblood Hart’ and Patty Griffin.It was an interesting path that lead Paul to find his place in the world as the respected songwriter and a successful musician he is today. This path would see him tour the world by the age of 15 – Not for Music, (although he always had his guitar close at hand) but to compete internationally in track and field.
