|Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase||Eve Goldberg|
Eve Goldberg is an engaging performer with a warm stage presence and a clear, expressive voice that will pull you in, whether she's singing a capella or accompanying herself on fingerstyle or flatpicked guitar. Her music is an appealing blend of the styles that have deeply influenced her, including folk, blues, bluegrass, swing, jazz, old-time, gospel and more. Singing a mixture of her own songs, songs by other writers, and traditional material, she combines a heartfelt respect for the music of earlier times with a love of contemporary folk styles.
Eve grew up in a musical family that exposed her to musicians like Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Ella Fitzgerald, The Weavers, The Beatles, Bessie Smith, and Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band, among others. Since the start of her performing career in 1990, she has performed to appreciative audiences at festivals and clubs across North America. Her first CD, “Ever Brightening Day,” received enthusiastic reviews and extensive airplay in Canada, the U.S., and overseas; her newest release is "Crossing the Water," on the Borealis Records label. CBC Radio One fans know Eve’s instrumental “Watermelon Sorbet” as the opening theme to the popular national daily show "Richardson's Roundup."
Audiences love the rich musical texture of Eve’s performances, as she sings a quiet ballad one minute, picks a guitar instrumental the next, belts out a blues the next, and tops it off with an uplifting a capella chorus. But more than anything, listeners respond to Eve's music because it is about the everyday lives of ordinary people — their joys, hopes, struggles and triumphs.
