Eric Andersen
first came to prominence as a performer in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and immediately became part of the Village folk and songwriter scene (along with Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk, and Bob Dylan) and became one of the founders of the singer songwriter movement.

He’s co-written songs with Bob Weir, Townes Van Zandt, Rick Danko, and Lou Reed.  His songs have been covered by many artists including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, Fairport Convention, Linda Ronstadt, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Blues Project, Gillian Welch and Linda Thompson.   In 2013 Bob Dylan’s version of Eric’s song “Thirsty Boots” was released as a single on Record Store Day and also appears on the recently released Bob Dylan CD Another Self Portrait.

Over the past 45+ years, Eric has released over 25 CDs of original music.   In the early 1990s Eric recorded 2 trio-harmony albums with The Band’s Rick Danko and Norwegian singer Jonas Fjeld.   He’s featured in the Joni Mitchell documentary, the
Wildflower Festival DVD with Judy Collins, Tom Rush, and Arlo Guthrie, in the rock film Festival Express and in the documentary Greenwich Village: Music That Defined A Generation.

In 2003 Eric won the Premio Tenco award with Patti Smith in San Remo, Italy,  an award given to outstanding songwriters.   Eric Andersen’s poetical songs have entertained and captivated audiences worldwide. He plays acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica and piano/keyboard in concert and performs songs which span all his albums including his early classics “Thirsty Boots” and “Violets Of Dawn” as well as new songs.

 “Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer.” —Bob Dylan on stage at the Oslo Spektrum
