Jack Schauer is a folk and folk rock singer-songwriter who hails from Fargo, North Dakota. His venues include coffeehouses and larger concert halls mostly within the Upper Midwestern region of North Dakota and Minnesota. His influences can be strongly felt from the decades of the 1960's and 1970's on up to the present. He is very active locally in North Dakota in Democratic politics and in turn some of his songs are quite political in nature (in terms of various lyrics). His songbook includes a total of some 50-60 songs, many of them still unrecorded. Jack is also heavily involved in Minnesota Association of Songwriter's out of Twin Cities area of (Minneapolis/St. Paul) frequently playing there as well as sponsoring singer-songwriter showcases within the Fargo-Moorhead area of the Red River Valley. A recent article describing Jack's music in the November 6th 2003 issue of the Fargo Forum states regarding his first CD just released, 'the CD drips with acoustic licks, Spanish guitar fills and socially conscious lyrics channeling singer/songwriters like Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs.'
