The Jump is excited to welcome back Paul Lee Kupfer to the stage! Join us Tuesday, March 28th 6-9pm!
Paul Lee Kupfer is from a lot of different places—a West Virginia native, he lived in Pennsylvania, California, and Montana before settling in Knoxville. When he’s not on the road as a solo singer-songwriter, Kupfer is one-third of the Bus Driver Tour, with fellow country-folkies Ian Thomas and Danny Freund. (Thomas is also based in Knoxville; Freund lives in Montana.) It’s an itinerant life for an itinerant musician.
Somewhere along the way, though, Kupfer managed to stay in one place long enough to record Where the Wind Goes, his debut solo album. It’s a collection of unreconstructed folk in the style of early Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Arlo Guthrie, recorded at Wild Chorus Studio here in Knoxville with Jamie Cook, Robert Richards, Evie Andrus, and Josh Oliver. The songs range from quiet melancholy (“Highway to the Coast”) to shuffling blues (“Riverbank Blues”) and vibrant, fiddle-fueled road anthems (“Where the Wind Goes”).
Paul Lee has shared the stage with The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Taj Mahal, Shovels & Rope, Truth & Salvage Co., Sarah Jarosz, Pokey Lafarge, The Emmitt Nershi Band, Los Lonely Boys and many more talented performers. He has played at Red Ants Pants Festival, and the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion as well as theaters, bars, venues, haunts, dives, and places in between.
