Review for Eric Nassau:

Eric Nassau has been traversing the country since 1996, sharing his unique voice and bringing community together through song. Through his travels, he has been featured at Festivals throughout the Midwest, at the folk clubs in LA , NYC and Chicago, won the weekly Songwriter shoot-out at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta and is a treasured performer in his hometown of Columbus.

In the tradition of folk troubadours, his original songs reflect lived-in soles and handed-down stories, personal anecdotes mixed with imagination and charm. His stage show backs this up; his engaging personality reaches out to audiences like a friend you haven’t seen in years.

The Boss, Claude Ramsey

I try not to overuse the word great, but we lost a great man today, Claude Ramsey. I had the pleasure of serving under him as director of Commercial and Industrial Properties for 14 years while he was the Hamilton County Assessor of Property.
