Upcoming Shows and Online Lessons

March 8, 2023:

Paul and I are getting ready for our first tour of the Midwest in many years, with shows in Marietta, Ohio, and Pittsburgh, PA. We are both excited about playing for a festival audience again. My own excitement is mixed with more than a dash of panic as I, uh, dash around making preparations for travel. The plan is to front-load all the drama onto this process, so that the trip will be an uneventful one.

Paul Rishell Talking GuitarAvailable now from Mojo Rodeo Records
"Talking Guitar delivers exactly what its title and its creator's reputation promise: lucid translations of prewar records and expert insight into what made them so good. After hearing Paul Rishell's blues, you'll have a hard time denying the power of such bare, organic, and emotive sound."

Paul's blog - Baseball

In 1960, when I was 10 years old,  I returned to the U.S. after living in England.  A lot had changed since I had left the country 3 years earlier.  My old team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, were no more.  We lived in New York, and occasionally I'd go to Yankee Stadium and watch the Yankees play.  I never liked the Yankees.  It never seemed that they needed me as a fan; they had plenty of fans. The worst team in the league in 1960 was the Baltimore Orioles.  I chose them as my team because I felt they needed my support.
