ERIC ANDERSEN is a singer-songwriter who, along with the likes of Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs, helped launch the folk-music revival of the 1960's. His songs, including "Thirsty Boots," "Close the Door Lightly When You Go," "Is It Really Love At All" and "Violets of Dawn," have been recorded by innumerable artists, including Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Judy Collins and Johnny Cash. His musical collaborators include Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Bob Weir and Lou Reed, among many others. Andersen continues to record and perform, and Songpoet, a feature-length documentary about his life and career, will be released later this year.
