Archant

Banjo player, songwriter, raconteur, juggler and acrobat, Curtis Eller will be at Cambridge Junction on September 4. Born in Detroit, he says he rose to obscurity as “New York’s angriest yodeling banjo player”. Citing Buster Keaton, Abraham Lincoln and Elvis Presley as his primary musical influences, Eller became a staple of the beer halls, burlesque houses and underground theaters of the eastern seaboard. Fame proved elusive.

Eller thus uprooted his family and resettled in some faded, tobacco town in the North Carolina Piedmont to begin the arduous task of assembling a new version of his band as Curtis Eller’s American Circus describing it as a brutish and inelegant rock and roll outfit specializing in banjo music for funerals, gospel tunes for atheists and A lavish, Hollywood, dance sequence unfolding on the floor of a Chicago meatpacking plant in 1894. Doors 7pm, tickets £22,59 in advance from 01223 511511 or www.junction.co.uk
