Eric Blackmer (photo courtesy of Google Images) is many things to many people, multifaceted. He has just released an album of original music titled “How I Survived the 00s”. On the surface Eric Blackmer is a folk musician, a singer songwriter and acoustic guitar player from Peterborough, NH. But he is also a studio builder, a recording and live sound engineer and much, much more. Blackmer has a long history in Rock and Folk music.

In the late 60s he was in the band, Simonpure, with David Frank, later of The System. In the early 70s he played hot single cylinder rock & roll with Velocette, and then with Art Attack he backed up Slaphappy at the Charles Playhouse in Boston. Meanwhile, he performed with Lucy Sollogub as Coleus and the Unicorn, a dulcimer- guitar duo.

Then for several decades marriage and family took precedence. He began performing again in the late 90s with Full Cold Moon, an acoustic trio playing original & Celtic music. Proceeds from the $5 suggested donations will go to a local non-profit organization chosen by the feature performer.

The Boulder Coffeehouse is a smoke-free, alcohol-free, fair-trade coffee, candlelit venue for folk and other musical genres. Suggested freewill donation is $5 at the door. Non-perishable food goods are also encouraged. Through out the evening a delicious assortment of baked goods, teas, and fair trade coffee will be available for your pleasure.

      Thank you Stephen. I am so pleased you are enjoying the writing. It is important that we share simple truths and promote sustainability in our own neighborhoods. Look forward to sharing more as we walk the road to less is best. New Coffeehouse News will be posted later today.
