The two songwriters collaborate on each other's sets with Eberhardt playing guitar and dobro and Mosrie on background vocals.
Don't miss this dynamic show full of laughter and passionate, heartfelt songs at the most intimate, elegant listening room on Boston's North Shore.
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 jingle 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 soon 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. Eberhardt went on to produce 9 more albums on Shanachie and Red House Records to critical success as well as accumulating multiple 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 latest project is "Shrew Songs" â€“ written and performed in the 2012 Folger Theatreâ€™s award-winning production of "The Taming of the Shrew". He is also well known as a songwriting teacher, producer and arranger.
Louise Mosrie got her start by taking top honors at the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriting contest 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. Her album, "Home", debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2010. Her latest album, "Lay It Down", was arranged and produced by Cliff Eberhardt and landed on several "Best of" radio lists in 2014. She continues to tour widely as a solo artist and also with Eberhardt.
