An Evening with the Andersons
Doors opens at 7 pm.
A singer-songwriter in the round evening featuring Mark Anderson, Ryan Joseph Anderson, Edward David Anderson & Matthew Francis Andersen.
This is a seated show; everyone with a ticket will get a seat.
RYAN JOSEPH ANDERSON: Ryan Joseph Anderson’s solo career began in April 2014 with the release of his debut album, The Weaver’s Broom. The album, engineered and co-produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hooray for the Riff Raff), was hailed as one of the best Americana records of the year. Songs from The Weaver’s Broom made "best of" lists for Daytrotter and Songpickr and were featured in Paste and Magnet. American Songwriter said that Anderson "evokes the open-tunings of Nick Drake as well as the barroom howl of Tom Waits." Before going solo, Anderson was known as the bandleader and songwriter for the beloved Chicago roots outfit Go Long Mule, as a guitar slinger for garage-rockers Rambos, and as a producer, sessions man and sideman for numerous artists. His influences range from country blues to psychedelic rock and are on prominent display in his masterful guitar playing and songwriting. Anderson’s sophomore release, City of Vines was released in the summer of 2017 to critical acclaim. https://ryanjosephanderson.com
EDWARD DAVID ANDERSON: Edward David Anderson is an American songwriter and rock & roll veteran who spent his formative years fronting the revered Midwest band, Backyard Tire Fire. Known for infectious melodies and memorable messages he penned eight albums for the band and played countless shows across the US and Canada. Since their hiatus in 2011 EDA has continued to write and tour as a solo artist. His delivery in the live setting is both dynamic and impactful showcasing a natural prowess on banjo, acoustic/cigar box guitars and foot percussion. He defines his sound as Black Dirt Music. "Songs about people and places, about life and love and loss. It's roots music, cultivated in the fertile soil of the Midwest." https://www.edwarddavidanderson.com
MATTHEW FRANCIS ANDERSEN: Matthew Francis Andersen was born and raised in Chicago. But as a former walleye and musky fishing guide home has also been as far as northern Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. That's where Andersen's EP Blue Line takes you: from the local taverns and street lights, to the boat landings and rivers deep within the northwoods. Matthew Francis Andersen's writing shows you where this Midwesterner has been. Logging trucks and taxi cabs, game wardens and bar patrons live inside these songs. Andersen has won American Songwriter Magazine's 2012 Lyric Contest, and shared the stage with the likes of Gurf Morlix, Steve Forbert, Kevin Gordon, Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart. https://www.matthewfrancisandersen.com
