Mariposa Folk Festival is proud to begin its announcements of the 2015 artistic line-up with the good news that folk music icon, Eric Andersen, will be on stage at the festival this summer.
This is just the first of many artistic announcements over the coming weeks and months.
Eric Andersen’s voice, songs, guitar and piano playing have supported an impressive career that spans five decades.
He has recorded 25 albums of original songs, and made numerous tours of North America, Europe, and Japan.
The shortlist of renowned artists that have recorded and performed his songs includes Ricky Nelson, Judy Collins, Fairport Convention, The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary, Linda Ronstadt, Johnny Cash, The Grateful Dead, and Mary Chapin Carpenter, plus many others around the world.
A documentary about Eric Andersen – a study on the culture of fame, the fragility of an artist’s career and the integrity of an artist – is currently in production.
