November 8, 2015 - Singer-songwriter Eric Andersen wrote “Thirsty Boots” and other urban-folk staples of the 1960s. He was Bob Dylan’s contemporary in New York’s Greenwich Village music scene, and like Dylan, he travelled in the late 1960s to Nashville, where he recorded A Country Dream at Wayne Moss’s Cinderella Sound studios. In 1972 Andersen created Blue River—a landmark album in the folk-rock genre—with producer Norbert Putnam at Putnam’s Quadrafonic studio on Music Row. Andersen now lives in the Netherlands. He discusses his Nashville works and performs briefly in this local appearance. Andersen is accompanied by Inge Andersen (vocal harmony) and Michele Gazich (violin). This event is presented in support of the exhibition Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, presented by Citi. Musician Pete Finney, co-curator of the exhibit, hosts this program.
