"It took 40 years, but Eddie Holstein has finally made a record (titled, "Eddie Holstein"), except now of course it's a CD. And maybe just as well he took his time. This is lovely, funny, heartening music, played and sung without affectation or guile, music by a man wise enough to avoid all artifice. Holstein sings ... simply and directly, his South Side accent shining through. Holstein knows who he is, and that makes him good company. Most of the 17 tracks are studio recordings, featuring Holstein's superb thumping style of finger picking, plus a little banjo, bass, mandolin and percussion But several tracks were recorded live, capturing Holstein's other great talent – talking," said Chicago Sun-Times writer Tom McNamee, about Holstein's 2009 CD.

"Although Eddie Holstein has been a stalwart of the Chicago folk scene for more than 40 years, he's probably as well known for his involvement in such fabled clubs as Somebody Else's Troubles and Holstein's – which he co-owned with his brothers Alan and the late Fred – as he is as a performer ...Eddie also happens to be one of the funniest comedians I've ever heard," said Mike Regenstreif, in Sing Out Magazine.

The concert is open to the public and all ages are welcome. Food and beverages are available at Aleks' Restaurant. For additional information or advance reservations call The Lake County Folk Club at 847-271-1584 write to Tom Bradfish at tbradfish@comcast.net or visit: www.thelakecountyfolkclub.org
