Eric Bettencourt & Will Mallett

Thursday - August, 10 @ 6:00pm

Eric is an award-winning songwriter based in Austin Texas.

With a quick wit and controlled-intensity Bettencourt brings his live shows to life using an expansive catalogue of original crowd-pleasing songs. Where so many artists are content recycling the same old sounds and songs Bettencourt is one of the rare few able to forge his own. Utilizing his piano-like 6 &12 string finger-style guitar work and a natural vocal delivery, somewhere between Ray LaMontagne and Robert Plant, he never lingers long in any one sound. Constantly blending, bending, and stretching different genres and styles into his multi-layered musical concoctions is what continues to gain him fans all around the country.

Eric got his musical start in the beautiful coastal city of Portland, Maine where his unique sound garnered him a strong fan-base and consistent FM radio play. It's here that he shared the stage with notable acts such as Grace Potter and the The Wood Brothers.
