“Martin Luther King, Jr.: An Appreciation”

Friday Evening, January 21st at 7 PM: “Eric Kilburn In Concert”

“Good Songs! We need humor badly! I’ve sent them the Sing Out.”
– Pete Seeger

“Eric Kilburn is an accomplished mandolin player and singer. He played a number of songs, one about the proverbial midlife crisis as a parent that even contained a line about the book, Goodnight Moon. He led the way on some Django type gypsy jazz, in fact, he did a composition called “Django’s Convertible” that was so good, so good so good. I tell ya, if you want to find men with big hearts, come hear this man and his friends.”
– Kimmy Sophia Brown, Swans Island Sweet Chariot Festival

Eric Kilburn played extensively throughout the eastern United States in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and released 4 acclaimed albums.

He’s played on Passim’s stage over 40 times, both as a headliner and opening for the likes of Tracy Chapman, Shawn Colvin, Eric Andersen and others, He took a 26 year sabbatical from touring and active performing, taking time to raise a family,and record over 800 albums at his studio,Wellspring Sound. He recently decided to “stick his toe back in the pond” and begin performing as a solo act again, and is working on a new album of songs about growing up and parenting. Eric’s songs have been covered by Arlo Guthrie, Fred Small, Sally Rogers, Priscilla Herdman, Lucie Blue Tremblay, and many others.
– Club Pasim
