Eric Welton (2008)

May 19, 2009

Artist: Eric Welton
Home: Windsor (From Chatham)

   Eric grew up in Chatham around the musical circles of underground music and the comforts of Square Root Of Margaret.

Note by Andrew MacLeod :
   Producer, singer/songwriter, sound man, photographer, bartender, advertiser, collaborator, optimist, fan. Eric Welton is a man of many hats. Coming to Windsor as a Chatham export a few years ago, Eric has lent his willing and capable hands to just about every musician in this area in one form or another. He’s made posters for six packs, recorded albums for 20’s, been there to help you mix the sound live, and written and performed in entertaining fashion, West to East, while always hoping to get a few more folks together on any given night, to share some tunes and collaborative energy just to see what happens. I’ve got to say, it’s nice to see that mind frame making progress and paying dividends.
