Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. The twenty-year 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 view 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 and Europe.

Eller’s legendary solo shows once earned him the title of “New York’s angriest yodelling banjo player”. In March 2024, Eller will returns to Smith’s for an intimate, acoustic performance.

NB: Show runs 90 minutes with no break, but Curtis assures us he’s not offended if you go get yourself a drink.
