An Evening with Peter Case
Saturday, March 16th 2019
Three-time Grammy nominee Peter Case’s work sets the bar for authenticity, passion and imagination, and spans a number of genres, including folk, blues, and rock. Raised in Buffalo, NY, Case came to the Bay area in 1973 and worked as a street musician and played in the seminal power pop group The Nerves, before moving to Los Angeles to form the Plimsouls.
The Plimsouls achieved success with the hit single, “A Million Miles Away,” which landed them a role in the movie Valley Girl, as the band performing during the club scenes. Case’s 1986 solo debut revealed deep roots in folk and blues, and earned him his first Grammy nomination for the song “Old Blue Car,” as well as the Number 1 spot on the 1986 New York Times Best CDs list. Six CDs later, Case earned another Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Folk Album with Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, a remarkable collection of songs that features Case’s voice and a single guitar. It’s clear that Case is a major talent on the Americana troubadour landscape.
