Eric Bolander: Online Concert
Thu. October 29th, 2020 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm EDT
Join us for an evening of music as we welcome Eric Bolander and Seth Murphy to the library stage for an online concert.
Eric’s flavor of Americana/Folk Music offers soulful vocal tone with thoughtful melodies that have staying power. Lyrically driven by life experiences, Eric’s songs will give you a glimpse into his life and a realization that happiness can be perpetuated through pain.
Bolander’s sensitivity to the human condition stems primarily from humble roots in the small eastern Kentucky town of Garrison, stretching at the edge of the Appalachian foothills and running along the Ohio River Valley. Growing up in a low income household instilled within him a sense of hard work and fighting for what he wanted in life. His mother was a homemaker (whose family had ties to several bluegrass legends) and his father a union carpenter and construction worker, both pivotal forces behind his early development.
