Eric Andersen’s concert will be a highlight of the upcoming NYC retrospective “CAMUS: A STRANGER IN THE CITY” a series of events from March 26 – April 19 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the French writer’s one and only trip to the U.S.A in 1946.
The festival includes dramatic readings, film screenings, concerts, book talks, and panel discussions. The Camus series are presented and organized by the Albert Camus Estate, in collaboration with NYC historian and curator Stephen Petrus. Eric’s performance will feature songs from his most recent work: Shadow and Light of Albert Camus (Meyer Records) was released in 2014 on vinyl and in 2015 on CD.
Poem texts were extrapolated by Eric from Camus’ works. He filtered them poetically to make them into songs while retaining the spirit of the text. In an interview Eric Andersen commented, “From vineyards of Camus, I tried to create four bottles of vintage wine that tasted deep and true.”
Eric Andersen (vocals, guitar, piano) will be accompanied by Michele Gazich (violin), Robert Aaron (multi-instrumentalist), Jagoda (percussion), and Steve Addabbo (guitar).
