Our next concert is April 25 with Teresa Tudury and Eric Andersen

Teresa Tudury

Hold on to your seats as Teresa Tudury takes you on a musical journey of wild and powerful songs and stories from the depths of her incredibly rich and inspiring repertoire.  Teresa performed here in February of 2008, and she was a total hit!

She is an original artist who was performing her own material in San Francisco nightclubs by the time she was 15. She has played on and off in the Bay Area for years, and for almost two decades was based in Los Angeles where, in addition to music gigs, she wrote comedy and worked as a character actress on stage and screen.

With a deep, sultry voice that magnetizes audiences, and a scathing comedic wit to match, Teresa is a consummate performer who pours out her original songs with power, verve, passion, and disarming humor. Her vocal stylings are perfectly complemented by her bluesy guitar playing.

Throughout her career, Teresa has recorded or performed with such greats as Leonard Cohen, Rickie Lee Jones, Lyle Lovett, Taj Mahal, Leo Kottke, Charlie Musselwhite and Bonnie Bramlett.

Teresa hosts a weekly radio show, “Live from the Doublewide,” Tuesdays from 8 – 10 p.m. at KOWS 107.3 FM in Sonoma County (streaming live at www.kows.fm.)

Her latest album is Such Fine Things

Teresa is a gifted artist in her prime, and we are very happy to have her back for her third performance at tales from the Tavern.

Eric Andersen

Eric Andersen’s voice, songs, guitar and piano-playing created a career that has spanned 50 years. He has recorded more than 25 albums of original songs, and has toured continually throughout North America, Europe and Japan.

His songs have been recorded and performed by Ricky Nelson, Judy Collins, Sandy Denny, Fairport Convention, The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul and Mary, Linda Rondstadt, Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead, The Blues Project, Linda Thompson, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Francoise Hardy, and many others.

He was born in Pittsburgh in 1943, and grew up in Buffalo, in a household filled with the love or music and art. In early 1963, he went to San Francisco to play in the coffeehouses and seek out the Beat poets. There, he met and became friends with Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Neal Cassady, Michael McClure and David Meltzer. While passing through town, Tom Paxton heard Andeersen singing at The Coffee Gallery in North Beach, and invited him to New York City, where he fell in with Phil Ochs, Dave Van Ronk, Fred Neil, Bob Dylan and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, with whom he lived. He soon started playing songwriter protest Hootenannies with Pete Seeger, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton and Peter LaFarge at the Village Gate.

Over the years, Eric:
– starred in the Andy Warhol film Space with Edie Segwick;
– toured with the likes of Elton John, The Doors, The Byrds and Bob Dylan (as part of The Rolling Thunder Review);
– collaborated with Townes Van Zant, Lou Reed, Rick Danko and Jonas Fjeld, David Olney, Guy Clark, Roger McGuinn, Steve Addabbo, and many others;
– composed and recorded music for film, and:
– has had several of his prose writings published.

As one of the acclaimed singer-songwriter programs presenting artists who influenced, who became, and who flowed out of the folk and folk-rock movement of the ‘60s, we are thrilled and humbled to present Eric Andersen at Tales from the Tavern.

“Eric Andersen is one of our finest lyric-poet songwriters …. He stands with his contemporaries Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell as one of the few remaining pioneers of the ‘60s singer-songwriter movement continuing to do important work.” – Aquarian Weekly
