Cliff Eberhardt

Cliff Eberhardt is a singer/songwriter with an attitude. He has made his mark in the new acoustic/contemporary scene as a sensitive tough guy whose guitar playing can be both hard-driving and intricate--once dubbed by Christine Lavin the, "bad boy of folk."

After a short career writing jingles (Heartbeat of America, from old Chevy commercials, must be his real greatest hit), he chose a different path. Cliff's songs have been called, "Stories you can touch, taste and feel." More than a few of his songs are about love and heartbreak, but whatever the subject, his lyrics can be counted on to be intelligent and articulate.

His career was interrupted a few years ago by an automobile accident, but Cliff is someone who can turn his own pain and suffering into a good time for an audience. If his humor tends toward bittersweet and sardonic, he remains a very funny man. Cliff last performed for the Folk Song Club in 1998, and we are pleased to welcome his return.

Tickets are available at Ithaca Guitar Works, Colophon Books (formerly Borealis Bookstore), Greenstar Co-op, Small World Music, Bound for Glory, and, if any are left, at the door. You may also order tickets online and by mail from CFSC, PO Box 481, Ithaca, NY 14851.
