The Greenwood Lake Public Library will present Eric Lipper in concert on Thurs., Dec. 13 from 7 to 8 p.m. with a special rock and roll holiday music performance. Eric Lipper is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer.
Originally from Rockland County, NY, Eric started on a toy piano that he got for his second birthday. Throughout school, he learned trumpet and piano more formally, and used every free study period to grab a nylon guitar from the music room closet and get acquainted. After fronting his own original rock bands in high school and at SUNY Purchase, Eric took an opportunity to play keyboards with The Platters.
Eric’s own songs and music range from very melodic to quite experimental. Immediately fascinated by the ghostly 1920s recordings of the Carter Family, Eric started The Tweedlers, a folk group that spent five summers entertaining at county fairs all around the northeast. He has performed with the Drifters, the Chiffons, Lou Christie, Bobby Lewis, and Danny and the Juniors. As a solo act, or as part of a band, Eric has played in theatres across the country, as well as at Sardi’s restaurant and the Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center.
