Poughkeepsie Chapter: Eric Lee

January 16, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Eric Lee

The Poughkeepsie Chapter of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild is pleased to be featuring Eric Lee in our monthly Open Mic on Saturday, January16, 2021 at 7:30pm.

A masterful and engaging multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Eric Lee combines poetic lyrics with a singular melodic sense that are strongly rooted in the folk and bluegrass traditions. For being still in his twenties, he has achieved experience beyond his years, drawing from years accompanying such notable artists that include Eric Andersen, Peter Rowan, and The Kennedy’s. As a member of the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival house band, Eric has sat in with numerous acts and artists from around the country.

Having released his self-titled EP in 2015, Eric recently finished production of his first full-length album, Heartache Town. Exceptional performances compliment Lee’s compelling and honest vocal delivery, as the graceful harmonies of renowned singer Tracy Grammer and the pristine mandolin of 5-time IBMA Mandolinist of the Year Jesse Brock (The Gibson Brothers) shine over the powerful and dynamic rhythm section comprised of seasoned talents Jim Henry (electric guitar), Paul Kochanski (bass), and J.J. O’Connell (drums).
On stage, Eric Lee carries himself with assurance and ease, and tells stories both unique and relatable, and often comical. Whether solo or accompanied, Lee’s performances set a bar of unique musicality that draws deeply from decades of study and experience, and will continue to do so for years to come.
