Cliff Eberhardt · 7:00PM
Eberhardt got his start in music in the 70's and 80's under the tutelage of mentors Tom Paxton, Odetta and Richie Havens in Greenwich Village's legendary music venues like The Bottom Line, The Lonestar and Kenny's Castaways. While learning his craft, he was hired by production houses in NYC to sing national campaign jingles such as "The Heartbeat of America" for Chevy as well as jingles for McDonalds and Coca-Cola. He also won a local Emmy award for his theme song for NYC's CBS affiliate.
Cliff Eberhardt was signed to Windham Hill Records and released his epic first original album in the 90s. “The Long Road” features a title cut duet with the late folk icon Richie Havens and the first single “My Father’s Shoes” hit #1 on the Billboard AC charts in cities nationwide. Eberhardt went on to produce 8 more albums on Shanachie and Red House Records to critical success as well as accumulating over 25 song cuts by other notable artists like Richie Havens, Shawn Colvin, Buffy St. Marie, Erasure, Russ Taff and Cry Cry Cry (Dar Williams, Richard Shindell & Lucy Kaplansky). His project & CD, “Shrew Songs” – was written and performed in the 2012 Folger Theatre’s award-winning production of “The Taming of the Shrew”. His newest project is for a new play called "Heal" which will debut at the Getty Villa in summer 2019.
He is also well known as a songwriting teacher, producer and arranger. “Eberhardt sings with passion and wit...what makes his brand so rare is the self-assurance and poise he brings to his nearly flawless show.” —The New York Post
Louise Mosrie · 7:00PM
Mosrie got her start by taking top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriting contest in 2009 and then went on to win or place at several other festival competitions including Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mtn. Folks Fest and Falcon Ridge Folk Fest.
“Louise Mosrie may well be the brightest young folk-oriented artist to emerge from Nashville in many a year.” – Rich Warren, WFMT-FM, The Midnight Special, Chicago
