Eric Sommer - Music
Eric Sommer is a singer, performer, rambler and one of the finest touring guitar players in the land, and on December 14th around 7pm you'll get to see something special: Eric Sommer in the front room, singin' an' guitarin' like no tomorrow!
He's been everywhere and done just about everything: Tours with Nick Lowe, Steve Earl, David Bromberg, and British Pop icons Wreckless Eric and Bram Tschicovsky puls, as the frontman for the ATOMICS, Eric guided the band through three national tours with Mission of Burma, Gang of Four and The Dead Kennedys - putting the ATOMICS squarely in the center of the Post Punk and New Wave cyclone...
If there’s any lingering doubt about Sommer’s supernatural versatility, consider that he’s opened for Old 97’s, Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins, Bluegrass icon Jerry Douglas, Mates of State, Dr. John, Leon Redbone and Built to Spill. Whether in band or one-man form (which nakedly showcases his amazing acoustic Blues guitar stylings), Sommer is a living history of contemporary music and a musical force of nature.
