Musical comedy meets folk music on Saturday October 3, 2009 at 8:00pm when the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club Concert Series at the Fair Lawn Community Center will present An Evening With Lou and Peter Berryman.

Lou and Peter Berryman are musical humorists who have delighted nationwide audiences for more than twenty years. Frequent comparisons to Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swann, and Burns and Allen not withstanding, these two are originals, blending Midwestern culture with intelligent observation in a whimsical and wonderfully accessible performance.

The Berrymans began their musical partnership in high school in Appleton, Wisconsin, way back in the sixties. By the eighties, they had established themselves as a prominent feature of the songwriting subculture of Wisconsin's capital, playing their original material every week for almost ten years in the run-down but trendy music room of Madison's Club de Wash. Gradually expanding their circuit, they began crisscrossing the continent and gaining national attention with appearances on such programs as Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion and NPR's Weekend Edition.

Regular appearances at festivals and folk music clubs all across the country now serve as venues for the songs contained in their twelve recordings and three songbooks, which have been performed by everyone from Garrison Keillor to Peter, Paul and Mary. In 1999 and again in 2001 they were chosen by Senators Feingold & Kohl to represent the state of Wisconsin with performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

The popularity of Lou and Peter Berryman -- whose friendship survived a brief marriage in the seventies -- is a testament to their intelligent and wickedly funny material which is never bawdy or risqué but is rich with wordplay and witty images.

The Fair Lawn Community Center is located at 10-10 20th Street in Fair Lawn, NJ. Tickets for this concert are only $20 ($17 for Hurdy Gurdy members) and can be purchased online at www.hurdygurdyfolk.org or at the box office at the Fair Lawn Community Center on the night of the concert.

Additional information can be received at the website or by calling the Hurdy Gurdy Hotline at (201) 384-1325.

DO NOT miss these folks if you can get there. Some of their songs will leave you smiling. Some of them will leave you with your sides aching. Some of them will sneak up on you, and leave you thinking seriously. I enjoyed their songs, by themselves and by others, for years before I finally got a chance to see them live.

They don't come East all that often (or, at least, not often enough to suit me!) so if you're reading this and you can be there, BE THERE!!!

When they're in my area I never miss 'em. Unfortunately, I'm a bit far away from Fair Lawn (Philly suburbs) and I have a gig about an hour away in the opposite direction. I'll have to wait till the next time they're performing around here, but who knows how many "next times" there will be....??

I'm sorry you can't make it Sharon, best of luck with your gig.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Lou & Peter on our stage. We have a nice 170 seat theater with a stage that is very close to the audience. Great ambiance and sound, and a perfect spot to spend an evening with these two incredible songwriters/performers!
