Paul Wilborn and the Blue Roses

Paul will be sharing songs and stories from his newly released book; Cigar City: Tales From a 1980s Creative Ghetto. Featured stories about living the creative life, and performing some American Songbook classics with his band, Blue Roses.

Paul Wilborn is considered one of the biggest movers and shakers in Tampa Bay’s creative arts scene. Wilborn’s career started in Tampa, as a writer for the Tampa Tribune, but has returned to the St. Pete side of the bridge continuously over the last 30 years. After a stint in Los Angeles working for AP, Paul and his wife Eugenie moved back to St. Pete, where they are now major driving forces (and performers) in the arts community. Wilborn now runs the Palladium Theatre of St. Petersburg College, where he brings an eclectic mix of performing arts to the community. Wilborn’s work at the Palladium allows him the opportunity to work on creative side projects simultaneously. He is currently working on two full length novels, which he will be adapting from plays he wrote.
