“Eric Lewis defies the old saying about the jack of all trades being master of none. Whether he’s picking mountain music with a string band, grinding out blues, or making the sacred steel squall and cry, ‘masterful’ is one of two adjectives that immediately spring to mind. ‘Authentic’ also works.” – The Memphis Flyer
Fish Creek, Wis. (January 18, 2021) – Memphis multi-instrumentalist Eric Lewis has been a fixture in Door County and at Northern Sky ever since the late 1990s. The pandemic kept him away from Door County this year for the first time in 20 years. We miss him, and we know you do too–but this Saturday, we’ll all get a chance to watch Eric perform live from Memphis, streaming straight into your living room via YouTube at 7:00 p.m. CST.
We don’t know how we got so lucky to count Eric as one of Northern Sky’s nearest and dearest. He has heaped up fans and accolades from coast to coast with his gentle vocal style, easygoing Southern charm, and lightning-fast picking on guitar, mandolin, Dobro, pedal steel, and more. Likely selections on Saturday include Americana classics, songs by Fred Alley, and a few Eric Lewis originals.
