Eric Andersen (born February 14, 1943, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American singer-songwriter.
Eric Andersen has maintained a career as a folk-based singer/songwriter since the 1960s. In contrast to such peers as Tom Paxton and Phil Ochs, Andersen’s writing has had a romantic/philosophical/poetic bent for the most part, rather than a socially conscious one, though one of his best-known songs, “Thirsty Boots,” has as its background the Freedom Rides of the early ’60s. (The song has been recorded by Judy Collins and others.) (allmusic.com/William Ruhlmann)
