The Songpoet follows the story of folk singer-songwriter Eric Andersen, who has written songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Linda Ronstadt, the Grateful Dead and many others.
He was at the vanguard of the Greenwich Village folk music scene of the 1960s and positioned to be a rising star of that movement. But in a five year period, he found himself a victim of improbable circumstances that changed his trajectory. His story is finally being told. The screening will be followed by a live Q&A and a performance with Eric Andersen himself.
