Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. The lifelong show business veteran began performing at the age of seven as a juggler and acrobat, but has since turned to the banjo because that's where the money is. His band, Curtis Eller’s American Circus, has developed a devoted international following based on spellbinding stage performances that combine a dreamlike vision of American history with silent film style, physical comedy, and explosive rock & roll energy.
The iconoclastic troubadour has spent twenty years relentlessly touring the clubs, theatres and festivals of North America, Europe and Australia. Eller’s legendary shows once earned him the title of “New York’s angriest yodelling banjo player”. This summer Eller will return to the UK for a limited run of shows, backed by a lean, four-piece lineup of The American Circus. This tour, anchored by a mainstage appearance at the Maverick Festival, will be the band's first European performances since 2019.
