Eric Lee & Kim Hoffman Double BillRaised in rural upstate New York, Eric Lee’s earliest introductions to music were the sounds of his mother’s piano and the songs of John Gorka, Bob Dylan, and Jackson Browne. He began studying classical violin and traditional Irish fiddle at the age of nine, and was soon performing and recording with local artists. The music of Eric Lee is a chimera of genres and influences; an ever-evolving world of sonic exploration with stand-alone melodies always at it’s core. His new EP traverses a range of emotion, from the unbridled joy of love in “Miles Above the Ground” to the wrenching pain of Eros in “To Write you a Song”; the unflattering honesty of coping with loss (“Life Without You”) to the cosmic petition to the ancient powers in “Hands of Fortune.”
Kim Hoffman is known to many for her sweet back up violin playing for several local musicians. On December 2nd, Kim will bring her guitar and vocals to share some of her original songs. Be prepared to laugh, think, and be touched as she shares stories and songs of some of her life’s observations and adventures! You may even get to hear the violin!
December 2nd | 8-10pm | $12
