Today's featured event:

Hear folk singer-songwriter Eric Andersen, along with violinist Scarlet Rivera, at 8 tonight at the Blue Door, 2805 N McKinley. 

Andersen first came to prominence as a performer in Greenwich Village in the early 1960s and immediately became part of the Village folk and songwriter scene along with Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk and Bob Dylan. 

One of the founders of the singer songwriter movement, he's written songs with Bob Weir, Townes Van Zandt, Rick Danko and Lou Reed. His songs have been covered by many artists including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Judy Collins, Fairport Convention, Linda Ronstadt, Peter, Paul & Mary, The Blues Project, Gillian Welch and Linda Thompson. 


Dylan’s version of Andersen's song “Thirsty Boots” was released as a single on Record Store Day and also appears on the Dylan album "Another Self Portrait."

Over the past 50 years, Andersen has released more than 25 albums of original music. His first live album, "Blue Rain," (Appleseed Recordings) released in 2007 was recorded at a concert in Oslo with members of the blues band Spoonful of Blues.

Doors open at 7:30 tonight. For tickets and information, go to www.bluedoorokc.com
