Cliff Eberhardt is a master of his craft, the consummate singer-songwriter – a legendary artist who captures every audience with every song. There is poetry in his voice and a voice in his lyrics that speaks to the soul of music lovers of every genre. Cliff delivers an intensity and passion that fulfills every notion of what we want from a performance – the personal connection from the artist’s heart to our own, a dose of wisdom earned from life’s tougher roads, a bit of humor, a tear, a nod, a graceful reference that reminds us of our own lives and loves.
Cliff’s career spans from New York in 1978 at the Bitter End, the Speakeasy, Kenny’s Castaway, Folk City, performing with such musical luminaries as John Gorka, Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, Julie Gold, Steve Forbert, Christine Lavin, and Shawn Colvin, through touring as guitarist on the road with Richie Havens and Melanie, to singing jingles for Coke, Miller Beer and Chevrolet (“The Heartbeat of America” campaign). His workshops and performances at Acoustic Getaway have endeared him to the Folk Project audience, and deservedly so.
Cliff is a true friend and early supporter of The Folk Project’s Acoustic Stayaway, and it’s an honor to have him back.
