‘Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer and writer’ ~ Bob Dylan

A double-bill featuring acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Ben Reel with his band and US folk legend Eric Andersen.

Eric Andersen is widely regarded as one of the most poetic songwriters that sprang from the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 1960s. As a musician, he defies categorization. His artful mélange of love, despair and hope has earned him a passionate international following and the admiration of artists ranging from Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen to Lou Reed and Wyclef Jean. His songs have been recorded and performed by Ricky Nelson, Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Johnny Cash plus many other greats.

Irish born singer-songwriter Ben Reel released his 6th studio album in 2013 entitled Darkness & The Light to much acclaim.

‘This guy is a great singer, superlative songwriter… highly recommended’ ~ Maverick Magazine
