The long anticipated return of the Songwriter's Showcase! Three imaginative, passionate people on the stage taking turns pouring their hearts out in song. They may even talk a little about what compels them to do such a thing, which is something I always wonder about. $5 suggested donation. Bring your own refreshments. Don't miss it! This week's songwriters:
Rich Eilbert is a native New Yorker who has been living in the Boston area for many years. Originally, he took up guitar to sing covers. He'd jam whenever possible at bluegrass festivals and at folk-music gatherings. Now, his emphasis has shifted toward writing original songs and performing them mostly around the Boston area. Rich's songs reflect his world view: that life is an ever-fascinating circus of activity and emotions.
Bob Harris has been writing songs since the 70's but it's really in the past seven years that he has found his best music that ranges from country blues to jazz folk to ballads to fusion. It's where the spirit moves and his life's journey that creates the music, beat and lyrics.
