On July 18, Concerts on the Creek presents a concert of seriously funny music. Lou & Peter Berryman are a songwriting duo from Madison, WI with a fairly normal resume:
•they've played music together since 1964,
•divorced, remarried other people and are best of friends,
•have released 18 recordings and four songbooks, and
•have played everywhere from A Prairie Home Companion to
the Wisconsin State Coroners' convention, and from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC to the Sheboygan Bratfest; Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, The Ark in Ann Arbor, and New York’s Caffe Lena have hosted them.

Take the elegant wit of Cole Porter, the topical satire of Tom Lehrer and the
absurdity of Flanders and Swann; blend with down-home Wisconsin cheese, gentle, oddly profound social comment, accordion and 12-string guitar, and -- voila! the wickedly funny, uniquely entertaining team of Lou & Peter Berryman. From cleaning the fridge ("When Did We Have Sauerkraut") to impending environmental catastrophe ("Why Am I Painting the Living Room?") to the eternal folly of youth ("A Chat with Your Mother" aka "The F-Word"), no subject escapes their keen and quirky observation.

"The Berrymans are indescribable. No one in or out of the folk music world sounds or writes like them. At first listening the uninitiated may wonder how two such goofy people achieved not merely success, but adulation. Then like they have done to everyone else, the Berrymans sneak into your mind and stage a coup." Rich Warren, WFMT, Chicago

They are admired by, not only thousands of music fans, but by some of our greatest songwriters. Pete Seeger, Peggy Seeger, Tom Paxton and Tom Lehrer have counted themselves among their fans.

A fan in Fresno wrote: “One thing I admire about your music is that your humor doesn't rely on put-downs, vulgarity, shock effect, or mean-spiritedness; the effect is energizing and up-beat and FUN!”

Expect to smile until your cheeks hurt, and be humming Lou & Peter Berryman's tunes for weeks to come.
