Cliff Eberhardt & Louise Mosrie – December 4

eberhardtandmosrie-color-360Raised in a musical family in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, Cliff Eberhardt knew at seven that his future was in music. With influences from The Main Line, a nearby folk club, to urban songsmiths like Cole Porter, the Gershwins, and Rodgers & Hart, he started touring in his teens. In 1978 Cliff moved to New York City. Working as a cabdriver, he maintained a musical life with solo gigs, studio and road work. His 1990 original, “My Father’s Shoes,” led to a first album featuring a duet with Richie Havens. A steady stream of recordings followed until a bad car accident forced a recovery of several years. He came back with “The High Above and the Down Below”, cited by USA Today as 2007’s #5 Album.

Louise Mosrie grew up with British parents on a farm near Nashville. After college in Knoxville, learning to play on a Sears guitar “borrowed” from her brother, Louise wrote her first songs influenced by her English roots and urban American pop, but a return to Nashville steered her back to the life she knew in the American south. Her career began with songwriter awards and a 2010 debut album “Home”, which charted at #1 on the Folk DJ list. Her latest album “Lay It Down,” produced by Cliff Eberhardt, comes out of a dark period after the end of her marriage and the death of her mother. The stories connected to “Home” have led to Mosrie’s being described as “…William Faulkner with a guitar.”
