    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, Bob Dylan, and was at the epicenter of the American Greenwich Village singersongwriter explosion. Aside from his own classics, he’s co-written songs with Bob Weir (The Grateful Dead), Townes Van Zandt, Rick Danko, and Lou Reed.  His songs have been covered by many artists including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, Fairport Convention, Rick Nelson, John Denver, Linda Ronstadt, The Grateful Dead, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Blues Project, Gillian Welch, Linda Thompson, and Rick Danko.  Bob Dylan’s version of Eric’s song “Thirsty Boots” was released as a single on Record Store Day and also appears on the Dylan CD Another Self Portrait. Over the past 50 years, Eric has toured the world and released over 30 CDs of original music including Blue Rain (Appleseed Recordings) his first live concert recording in Oslo with the band Spoonful of Blues, released in 2007. In the early 1990s Andersen recorded 2 trio harmony albums with The Band’s  Rick Danko and Norwegian singer Jonas Fjeld (Danko/Fjeld/Andersen). He’s featured in the Joni Mitchell American Masters documentary, the Wildflower Festival DVD with Judy Collins, Tom Rush, and  Arlo Guthrie, the rock film Festival Express and the documentary Greenwich Village: Music That Defined a Generation. In 1990 Eric won the New York Music Award for his album Ghosts Upon the Road, in 1992 the Spellemannprisen (Norwegian Grammy) for “Danko/Fjeld/Andersen” and in 2003 The Premio Tenco award with Patti Smith in San Remo, Italy, which is an award given to outstanding songwriters. Previous Premio Tenco awards have gone to Randy Newman, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and  Lou Reed. The Eric Andersen and Friends Webcast was launched in June 2011 by Nevessa Productions Woodstock with special guests Happy Traum, John Sebastian, Joe Flood and Inge Andersen. Featured songs performed in the webcast were from his album The Cologne Concert (Meyer Records) which was released on CD and Vinyl in April 2011. The live album features Eric’s wife Inge Andersen on back-up harmonies and he is accompanied on violin by Michele Gazich. Mingle With The Universe: The Worlds of Lord Byron (Meyer Records) was released in May 2017 on CD and Vinyl formats. “Byron was a born songwriter whose ceaseless waves of rhymes presented an endless sea for the ships of song.” All songs on the album featured the romantic poet’s stanzas with Eric’s music. Included are two original Andersen tracks: “The Curled Darling” and “Albion” which describe for the listener a taste of Lord Byron’s controversial and sometimes scandalous life, travels and writings.

    Birth of a Stranger: The Life and Times of Albert Camus (an expanded long-play version of Shadow and Light of Albert Camus - Meyer Records) was released in 2018 with two new tracks. The 4 song EP was originally released in 2014 on Vinyl and in 2015 on CD. Eric extrapolated new lyrics from Camus’ novels. Of the original EP version, he said in an interview, "From the rolling vineyards of Camus I tried to capture four bottles of good wine that tasted deep and true." The most recent in his “writer’s projects” releases is Silent Angel: The Exploded World of Heinrich Böll. In 2018 Sony/Legacy Recordings issued THE ESSENTIAL ERIC ANDERSEN (42 track digital release,  33 track 2 CD Set) retrospective release covering fifty years of his recorded history from  Today is the Highway to Blue River, and Ghosts Upon the Road and Beat Avenue and on to The Cologne Concert album and unreleased New York recordings. The Songpoet – a documentary about Eric Andersen will be released soon. The Songpoet follows Eric’s remarkable 50 year journey in America and Europe that continues today as he writes and records with a poetic passion. With unprecedented access to Andersen’s life and his personal archives the film will be a study on the culture of fame, the fragility of an artist’s career and the integrity of the artist as it reveals the indestructible energy that drives the artist and writer Eric Andersen in short -- a glimmering mirror and portrait of his times.

    Scarlet Rivera

    Americana

    Miss Rivera shows herself to be one of the best women Jazz-Pop instrumentalists around, and quite simply one of the best violinists playing today. New York Times
        
    The album (Desire) is also notable for the work of violinist Scarlet Rivera. It's hard to imagine what the album would sound like without her playing…  -Rolling Stone
     
    One of the world’s most prominent, active and versatile violinists, Scarlet Rivera is known for her contributions to the recordings and performances of some of the most influential artists of our time including Bob Dylan, Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman, Keb ‘Mo, David Johansen and Sylvia Tyson (Ian and Sylvia). She was also a featured soloist with the Duke Ellington Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Carnival of Venice, Italy. 
     
    Crossing all genres, her styles span a wide range including Rock, Folk, Country and Americana, World Music, Blues, Celtic Music, New Age and Classical.  She is one of a handful of innovators of the violin who composes a truly original style of music.
     
    Scarlet came to international acclaim on Bob Dylan’s Desire and Hard Rain albums, and is included on his Biograph and Bootleg Compilations. She also toured with Dylan on several live tours, including The Rolling Thunder Revue and appeared in his film Renaldo and Clara. Desire, on which Scarlet was featured on every track, was listed in Time Magazine’s Top 5 of the Dylan discography. The Academy Award nominated film, Hurricane is one of a number of movie soundtracks that Scarlet has contributed to.
     
    Under her own name, Scarlet has 15 albums to her credit and has performed in the US, Europe and Asia at such events as the Montreux Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Newport Jazz Festival and others.  She toured Japan from 2002-2005, premiering her original Celtic recordings Celtic Dreams and Celtic Myst, both of which garnered critical acclaim. Her popularity resulted in a headlining appearance at the Celtic Music Fest in Tokyo and her playing at the Tokyo Opera House, considered the Carnegie Hall of Tokyo, as well as touring throughout the country.
     
    Busier than ever, Scarlet had two major projects and three tours in 2015. She currently is part of the writing and recording team, Voices of van Gogh with John Durrill, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and former co-writer with Phil Everly, and singer and songwriter, John Cate. Scarlet is featuring her singing and songwriting in this collaboration in addition to her violin playing. They released their debut album, Painting With van Gogh in 2015. (www.facebook.com/voicesofvangogh)
     
    Scarlet was also invited  by lead singer/producer, Tim Goodman (Southern Pacific) to record with the band Magic Music, a successful acoustic “jam band” out of Colorado with a sound described as a mix of classic Laurel Canyon and the influence of tight vocal harmonies by the Hollies and CSN. She became part of their debut album, following a reformation of the band after many years – joining Bill Payne of Little Feat, and John McFee from the Doobie Brothers among others in recording and subsequent touring during the summer and fall of 2015. In 2016 Scarlet recorded an Americana album with the band Terraplane on their first CD, American Music, an album produced by Larry Cohn, former President of CBS Legacy Records.  
     
    In 2017 Scarlet joined Eric Andersen for a series of West Coast performances.  And in the summer of 2018 she shared the bill in performances through Canada and the North East with Sylvia Tyson. Currently Scarlet continues to perform with the A Call 2Peace ensemble on the West Coast.
