Eric Tessmer

  • 1009 Lincoln, Steamboat Springs, CO, 80488
  • Overview

    Catch the full Tessmer show after his Steamboat Free Summer Concerts appearance with Shinyribs at Howelsen Hill!

    Inspired in part by watching reruns of Austin City Limits on his local PBS station, Tessmer moved to Texas straight out of high school, and he quickly garnered a formidable reputation there for his fierce fretwork and explosive live performances. He cut his teeth playing residencies in clubs and bars, shared stages with everyone from Gary Clark, Jr. to Tab Benoit, and released a series of live and studio albums that earned widespread critical acclaim, with the Austin Chronicle dubbing him an “SRV-fast firebrand” and the Austin American Statesman hailing him as a “working class guitar hero.” While some artists work so hard they practically live in their rehearsal spaces, Tessmer took things a step further, literally building a bunk into the “glorified closet” where he practiced in order to make it his full-time home.
