Mother’s Day Concert @ McIntyre's Books
May 14 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

McIntyre’s is pleased to welcome acclaimed guitarist Eric Sommer as he brings his annual Mother’s Day event to the bookstore.

Eric Sommer started his musical career in the Boston area and has been a regular player on many national tours and showcases. He worked in Europe for two years with Nick Lowe and played with Dave Edmunds on Danish, German and British rock stages. He returned to Boston and formed The Atomics, a cult power-pop band in South Boston.

His influences are as diverse as Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Steve Howe and The Ramones. Mr. Sommer’s current project with power trio “The Solar Flares” shake up Chet Atkins and David Bromberg influences with those of Randy Travis and Elvis Costello – a remarkable mix.

With open tunings, slide guitar, lap-slap tone guitar and a remarkably aggressive fingering style approach… “Watching Eric Sommer will make you jump out of your seat and holler for joy! There are very few players who have maintained this authentic American style of guitar and Eric Sommer is one of the very best.” Studdie Burns, Melody Maker, UK 2014
