SW District Park hosts Eric Sommer! As we move into the Spring and Summer 2021, great things are happening in Chatham County! And one of the best, and a resident of Pittsboro, is coming up on Sunday, May 2 in the afternoon: Eric Sommer will be on the Park Stage in SW District Park…

He’ll talk about all the new things happening in Nashville. The latest release and newest record, play some of the new material off the other records, too. Then he’ll swing into the acoustic open tunings, pop songs, and country slide guitar he does so well.

“Briar Chapel, y’all are in for a treat! This guy is a Song Crafter, a Poet, an Author and an adventurer and traveler. His songs are filled with visions of bad coffee, wrinkled shirts, broken dreams – and hearts, and, in the same breath, he presents an unshakeable optimism about the future and celebrates the present…” Steve Markle, Nashville Skyline. “When y’all are done with him, send him back!”

Eric has won numerous awards in a variety of categories. He took 1st place in the Piedmont Blues Competition. And he went to the International Blues Competition in Memphis, too.


“How do you call this sidekick to unique personalities ranging from Nick Lowe to John Koerner an underachiever? This multi-instrumentalist bad boy could easily be a superstar in his own right…” Midwest Record, Lake Zurich, IL

“Eric Sommer is an astounding guitar player, a virtuoso on acoustic and electric… Eric has worked with everybody who is anybody; His resume’ reads like a musical encyclopedia…” Nashville Music Reviews, Don & Sherry’s Blog

“It’s a wonderful evening whenever Eric Sommer is part of it… Not to be missed!” Austin Record, Steve Barron
