Paul Arnoldi


Album "Let's Go (Testing, Hear, We're Goin' Down)":

NOW: living on a mountainside east of Corvallis, Montana, recording/writing; performing traditional folk learned back in Cambridge,( where he had the pleasure to sing at the CLUB 47 anniversary, January 2008.) and original songs...

THEN: PAUL left Laramie for Cambridge, Mass., to attend Harvard, where, along with many musicians, including Eric von Schmidt Joan Baez, Tom Rush, Jim Kweskin, Taj Mahal, Geoff and Maria Muldaur, Bob Jones, Jackie Washington, and Jerry Corbitt, he performed at the Club 47 Mt. Auburn, Boston area venues, and birthday parties. After graduation he was ‘CRVB’ #10 (playing guitar) with the bluegrass group, THE CHARLES RIVER VALLEY BOYS. In the fall he traveled to architecture school in Berkeley, Ca. Where he played prairie-influenced-east coast -folk style of traditional and original songs in the major clubs of the San Francisco Bay area. His love of music trumped architecture, and he decided to “do music, and build on his own”.
Another drive across the United States to Cambridge. He resumed performing there for a year or so, including a stint with the UNICORN JOOK BAND, a short lived band, (one Christmas season), composed of Debbie Green, Eric Andersen, and David Blue. (Taj Mahal wisely bowed out). Then on to New York City, moving into a loft at 13 Bleeker Street, Greenwich Village.
Knocking on doors, PAUL was well received at the office of Albet Music, an offshoot of Albert Grossman Music, and signed a record deal with Kapp Records. A ONE NOTE MAN, released in ‘67, was selected as ‘Folk Pick Of The Week’,(“a happy cross between Roger Miller and Bob Dylan.”, (Stereo Review ). The title song was recorded by THE YOUNGBLOODS, on GET TOGETHER, their first album. He opened for BILL MONROE at The Gaslight Cafe, where Bill suggested that Paul get a cowboy hat, and take his song , WIDE OPEN SPACES (about Wyoming), to Nashville.... After a time in the Village, ARNOLDI packed up his dog and 6 and 12 string guitars, and returned to the hills behind Berkeley, (Canyon, Ca.), playing again; the Berkeley/San Francisco area clubs, The 1968 Berkeley Folk Festival , for the People’s Park Folks , a Penguin show in San Francisco, and birthday parties....
PAUL moved back to Wyoming to remodel an old house, songs were written for HIGHROADS, recorded on vinyl in Los Angeles., to be re- released in 1997 on CD . HIGHROADS TEN PLUS TWO is a resung, remixed, revised version of the LP. “PLUS TWO ” refers to two new songs: A PEACEFUL WORLD, and NO MORE WAR. His Cd, ARNOLDI, composed of original songs, plus DUNCAN AND BRADY, and JOHN RILEY, was recorded in 2003.
