Eric Andersen + Scarlet Rivera with Cheryl Prashker
April 15 /7:30 pm 10:00 pm
Eric Andersen, one of the founding fathers of the great American Folk Family, continues to evolve and reinvent himself. It’s as though he has an unquenchable thirst to create new works and adapt the works of other literary icons of the past. For me that is the mark of a true artist, constantly moving the finish line and looking for new ways to express himself and not fearful of taking the great works of others and translating them into song in his own undeniable fashion.
“Andersen is the most elegant of singers.” – Rolling Stone
“A singer and songwriter of the first rank.” – The New York Times
“Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer and writer.” – Bob Dylan
