The Arson’s Match – Peter Karp with special guest Mick Taylor

Peter Karp’s The Arson’s Match, is a new live release by Americana/Blues artist Peter Karp. It was originally broadcast live on Sirius Satellite Radio during a 2004 performance at the historic Bottom Line in New York City to a sold out audience. The masters, lost for many years turned up in a storage facility garbage bin. The Arson’s Match puts the considerable talents of guitarist-singer-songwriter Peter Karp on full display. Backed by a glowing ensemble of consummate talent, Karp, a masterful slide guitarist and exhilarating vocalist, teams up with guitarist Mick Taylor of the legendary Rolling Stones. Together, Karp and his Roadshow Band put forth a solid performance of Karp’s finest original songs to a packed house at NYC’s historic Bottom Line Cabaret.


Considered one of the finest contemporary Americana and blues artists around, singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist Peter Karp has carved out his own unique niche. At once funny, poignant, irreverent, romantic and always true to life, Karp’s compositions reflect his own intriguing backstory. Raised both in the swamps of New Jersey and rural trailer parks in southern Alabama, Karp masterfully crafts music fueled with a Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition by infusing genuine emotion, humor and candor in a setting of exquisitely performed rhythms and compelling vocalization. As a songwriter Karp first garnered national attention and critical acclaim through his collaboration with guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones who recorded and toured with Karp on his first label
release, The Turning Point. His next national release on Blind Pig Records, Shadows and Cracks, has Karp sharing the main stage with the venerable Delbert McClinton,New Orleans-based roots rock band, TheSubdudes, and three-time Grammy winner, blues great Keb Mo. Karp’s unmistakable lyrical style, consummate handling of the slide
guitar and his propensity for dynamic performances have made him a remarkably rare talent in American roots music.

“Karp is his own man, an artist who blends roots music styles into something that transcends blues, country, R&B and swamp. John Prine’s wordplay, Joe Ely’s rocking instincts, Billy Joe Shaver’s fatalistic outlook.” J. Poet
