Spend an evening with singer-songwriter Eric Peter Schwartz from 8-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Bartlett Nature Center Auditorium, 2054 W. Stearns Road in the James "Pate" Philip State Park Visitor Center. Quirky, funny, tragic, romantic, nostalgic -- Schwartz is never quite sure how to describe his brand of folky, acoustic music.
Schwartz has been entertaining in the Midwest for over 25 years, as both a musician and comedian. As a songwriter, he tackles lighthearted stories and subjects like going to dances in the 1980s, a couple who fall in love over a game of Dungeons & Dragons or the story of cops trying to track down a beautiful woman, who makes a hangover cure that knocks people out.
Schwartz wears his heart on his sleeve and writes across a spectrum of human experiences and feelings. He cites "everything he's ever listened to from Woody Gutherie to Def Leppard" as his main influences. Visit www.youtube.com/epschwartzmusic.
Tickets are $5 at the door or for advance tickets, call (847) 608-3100 and press 2 for the nature center.
All the evening's proceeds will benefit the theater programs held at the Bartlett Nature Center.
