The Berrymans' web site:
and Peter Berryman began their musical partnership in high school in
Appleton, Wisconsin, way back in the sixties. By the late seventies,
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 eighteen recordings and four
songbooks, which have been performed by everyone from Garrison Keillor
to Peggy Seeger. |
The popularity of Lou and Peter Berryman — whose friendship survived a brief marriage in the seventies — is a testiment to their intelligent and wickedly funny material which is never bawdy or risqué but is rich with wordplay and witty images. This duo is not to be missed.
