Cliff Eberhard, an American folk singer-songwriter, is a founding member of the Fast Folk Music Cooperative in New York City. He joined Red House Records in 1997 and has recorded ten albums for the label. His 2009 “500 Miles: The Blue Rock Sessions” showcases powerful originals and unique covers and a reworking of his hit, “The Long Road,” a song more poignant after his two decades of touring and recording.
In 2019, Cliff reunited with old songwriting pals, John Gorka, Christine Lavin, Cheryl Wheeler and Patty Larkin to tour nationally again as On A Winter’s Night – five great writers in the round. The pandemic interrupted the tour, but it is scheduled to begin again in 2022.
In 2021, he released a new album of original songs, “Knew Things”, to critical acclaim and widespread Folk and Public radio airplay. The single “All the Things I Left Behind” and “Room in the City” are stand-out tracks.
Cliff”s songs have been recorded by many folks including Richie Havens, Buffy Sainte Marie, and Shawn Colvin. The New York Post says, “Eberhardt sings with passion and with wit…what makes his brand so rare is the self-assurance and poise he brings to his nearly flawless show.” http://www.cliffeberhardt.net.
Growing up riding horses and writing poetry on a cattle farm, Louise Mosrie began writing pop and folk songs after college. With a move to Nashville in 2004, she began co-writing with country, bluegrass, and folk artists which led to her 2008 album “Home” filled with stories and songs about southern life.
In 2014, Louise recorded ten songs of love, loss, and surrender in her album, “Lay It Down.” Collaborating with Cliff Eberhardt, the album was released to critical praise and made several top 10 lists in folk radio. She is currently working on a new album expected to be released in 2022. “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.
Louise is an award-winning songwriter earning top awards at Kerrville Folk, Telluride Bluegrass, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals. http://www.louisemosrie.com
As Covid restrictions ease, Louise and Cliff have begun touring again up and down the East Coast and Texas. We are fortunate to have them opening up the Linden Tree Coffeehouse’s 2022 season.
