Greenwood Lake Public Library hosts a Rockin’ Holiday Concert on Dec. 13
The Greenwood Lake Public Library welcomes back Eric Lipper on Dec. 13 with a special rock and roll holiday music performance.
GREENWOOD LAKE — The Greenwood Lake Public Library welcomes back Eric Lipper on Thursday, Dec. 13, from 7 to 8 p.m., with a special rock and roll holiday music performance. Lipper is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer. Originally from Rockland County, Lipper started on a toy piano that he got for his second birthday. Throughout school, he learned trumpet and piano more formally, and used every free "study" period to grab a nylon guitar from the music room closet and get acquainted. After fronting his own original rock bands in high school and at SUNY Purchase, Lipper took an opportunity to play keyboards with The Platters. Lipper’s own songs and music range from very melodic to quite experimental. Immediately fascinated by the ghostly 1920's recordings of The Carter Family, Lipper started The Tweedlers, a folk group that spent five summers entertaining at county fairs all around the northeast. He has performed with The Drifters, The Chiffons, Lou Christie, Bobby Lewis and Danny and The Juniors. As a solo act, or as part of a band, Lipper has played in theatres across the country, as well as Sardi's restaurant and The Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center. The library is located at 79 Waterstone Road in the Village of Greenwood Lake. For more information, call 845 477-8377 ext. 104.
