Album Notes
Frequent comparisons to Will Rogers and Dorothy Parker, and Burns & Allen notwithstanding, Lou & Peter Berryman are originals, melding midwestern culture with street smart savvy. With influences as diverse as Woody Guthrie, Gilbert & Sullivan and Jacques Brel, but always with a twist of their own, Lou and Peter Berryman write songs of inventive and intelligent humor. Their whimsical and wonderfully accessible performance of these hilarious and quirky, oddly profound songs make audiences laugh 'til their cheeks hurt and care for themselves and for each other.

Formerly married and longtime friends, in their almost 30 years together, Lou & Peter have recorded 16 albums of their original songs. Such venerable and prestigious venues as Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, The Ark in Ann Arbor, and New York’s Caffe Lena have hosted them regularly. They have performed frequently on national public radio including Minnesota’s A Prairie Home Companion, and they have played at most major folk festivals across North America. They tour throughout the year, and make their homes in Madison, Wisconsin.

Originality and invention pervades the careers of these two, as, in addition to writing words and music, they run their own mom-and-pop musical enterprise, handling booking and tour arrangements, scheduling, promotion, recording, artwork, layout and record distribution themselves.
