Victor Wainwright & The Train with Opener Owen Eichensehr @ The Geneseo Riviera
Nov 16 @ 6:00 pm

American singer, songwriter, pianist, and 2019 Grammy Award nominee Victor Wainwright will be performing at The Geneseo Riviera November 16th. Wainwright continues to broaden his musical scope starting his career off in rock n’roll to what is now a mix of different scope of blues. This dynamic range of music has proven him as a world-renowned piano player and performer. Wainwright continues to be a soul-bearing, dynamic performer with progressive roots music.

“Wainwright serves as an electrifying guide to a good time-spinning tales, telling his listeners how to beat the blues, and meticulously conjuring raw soul and energy out of his acoustic piano. He displays a sharp sense of humor and a knack for storytelling… every track is brilliant.” -Living Blues Magazine

In 2017, Wainwright won BMA Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year. In both 2013 and 2014, Wainwright won the ‘Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year’ at the Blues Music Award ceremonies. Also in 2013, his collaborative album, Easy Livin’, made the Top 10 in the US Billboard Top Blues Album chart.
